Nose
Nutty and spicy. Dominated but not drowned in sherry. Cherries in chocolate. Dried fruit. Kumquat.
Palate
Sherry leads the way. Candied chestnut. Fudge. Leather.
Finish
Robust. Warm. Spicy.
Comment
A distinguished expression of sweet Oloroso, even if it seems a bit ostentatious on the palate. For afterdinner enjoyment.

Nose
Sweet with toasted nuts, dried fruits and spices. Some light oaky tones and bracken. Water makes it slightly more fragrant: sweet hay, flowers, more spice.
Palate
A sweet yet savoury start. Caramelised fruit and nut. A good, quite chewy mid-palate but all very nicely underplayed.
Finish
Soft, hay-like.
Comment
A cracking Bladnoch. Let's have more like this.
