|Adelphi: A dry nose, almost meaty (pork crackling), becoming more Marsala like. Jaffacakes, Black Forest Gateau, chocolate ice cream and coffee grounds - all synonymous with long, sherries maturation. It starts relatively closed then develops huge complexity, now with Brazil nuts coated in dark chocolate, molasses, saddle soap and old leather bags.WSD: Spicy ginger cake. Jamaica cake. Dark chocolate ragu.|
|Adelphi: Incredibly viscous to taste, with a spicy mouth feel, gently drying over a palate of chocolate bonbons, toffee sauce (possibly slightly burnt), and a hint of brandy snaps.WSD: Salted fruit cake with a sweet spicy sauce and well aged oloroso sherry with tinned fruit cocktail. We also detected smoky ask on the finish.|
