    April 3, 2016 - Classic nose of toasted walnuts and burnt orange rind. Intense sweet ripe flavors with a dominating hard citric acid edge. Long wild passion fruit finish that really lasts over a minute. Great stuff and so much life it's crazy.

    April 3, 2016 - Olde Wine Dinner 1925-1966 (Chez Kailin Cellars): First real Maderia experience. Dark and clean color, needed time to develope biut I can see the potential. Very good.

    October 28, 2015 - FICOFI HK event - highlight of an amazing evening, for me. Great balance of aromas of stewed fruits, berries, black cherry, with some delightful freshness and excellent length. Haunting.

    October 17, 2015 - Ficofi 30th in Hong Kong. This Madeira was an epic drinking experience, possibly wine of the night for me. Fresh and seriously intense. Burnt sugar. Kept developing, so complex. Really mind-blowing when you then look at the age on the label. 1827 what?

    September 9, 2014 - Mature "Iconic Burgundy" dinner and tasting in Christie's board room, London. Limited note taking.
    A splendid way to finish the dinner. Caramel, charred oak, dry fig, desert fruits, spiced cooking apples, etc etc..... Intrinsically sweet but with the searing pectic acidity that all fine old Boals seem to possess throwing it into perfect balance.
    Immensely long (30+ minutes). Superb - 97+ and pretty well immortal!

    ps looked at my note on the Lomelino 1820 Solera Boal drunk on my birthday in April - virtually word for word identical!
