  • Portugal Tasting (Private Residence (Miami, FL)): In terms of color and palate it sits between an Oloroso and an Amontillado, except that it contains a higher dose of oak and resin and sharper orange peel acidity. Toasted brown color with glass coating tears. Bouquet of orange peel, almonds, honeycomb, and saltwater (reminiscent of speyside single malts). Entry is vibrant yet in harmony concerning the "just enough" level of sugar obtained in the blend. The finish is dry and oaky.

  • Reminds me of those giant metal vats of buttery caramel popcorn with nuts, but there's a sherry-like (I'm thinking Valdespino Palo Cortado) acid and noble soft roundness on the nutty, drying finish. Some model glue aroma detracts from the magic. I guess I was hoping to approach about 60% of the magic of the undated Terrantez, but nah. Maybe 20%. Still quite nice though--on the palate it builds to a quince and fig paste aroma on top of salted, fried marcona almonds; slightly hot on finish, but good for the price I suppose. It's the glue that pisses on the parade a touch. Day 2 it mellows significantly -- much better. I'd advise opening then reclosing, and approaching day 2.

  • A very fine colheita. Lots of nutty caramel fig and orange peel flavors, burnt sugar and a hint of molasses. Interesting layers to the viscous mouthfeel. What I really like about this colheita is the liveliness that complements the richness. Quite fresh and lively on the palate.

    My first experience with Madeira and I'm impressed thus far. This bottle is in great shape to drink now or to put away for another...100yrs?
