I got the pleasure of tasting this at a local Bruichladdich/Westland event/presentation including fruit and sherry accompaniment for reference and food pairing which only served to enhance the experience. Afterward, I determined acquiring a bottle was absolutely 100% required. The nose is eloquent with traces of PX, oloroso, cognac, and perhaps even Sauternes influence as the bouquet spreads into black currants, plums, black cherries, and perhaps even slight raspberry. The palate is velvety and mouth-coating with minimal spikiness on the back end, as the dark fruits flourish and present themselves one-by-one. The finish lingers for what seems like an eternity as the dark fruit fades and transitions toward cinnamon covered nectarines and blackberry. Anyone who's wheelhouse is sherry and who can spare a few extra dollars must snag one of these as a collectible item and as a celebratory dram/sipper. Although it may not be the original master distiller making it anymore, the juice is still spectacular and worth every penny.
