Lovely sherried nose with notes of dried fruits, marzipan, honey, oak and coconut. The palate is mild, sweet and subtle with heather honey, mint and a note of gingerbread. Oaky, peppery finish with a note of gingerbread. Fairly dry. Ends with a note of cardboard. A little disappointing. Verdict: The nose shows signs of greatness but the palate and finish don't quite deliver on the promise.

Score: 90 p

This is an example of what a "Connoiseur's Choice" bottle looks like.
