No formal notes. Not as complex nor interesting as the 18/04/14 bottle. Initially showed some acetate but nevertheless this was a good, almost spectacular bottle with plenty of concentration, salinity and almonds. A joy.
Super complex aromas of dried fruits, salt, antique furniture and freshly shucked oysters. Dry and salty in the mouth with faint suggestions of fruit tempered by dry savoury elements. Length of flavour is incredible.
JB @ 28-50 (28-50 Marylebone): Deep, intense tangy, smooth, long, everything. This seems to have lost its slight feeling of heat and now shows a wonderfully concentrated but rounded profile. More oloroso to me than my typical view of PC, this is wonderful. Hugely concentrated, rich, deep but balanced. Goes on and on. In the region of seventy or eighty years old apparently. *****
Wonderful on the nose - intense and aromatic, but just too much wood, too chewy - real test tube wine. I can imagine it going down well in a tasting but we couldnt drink half a bottle between two sherry lovers.
