Henriques & Henriques 15 year old Malmsey/Malvasia Tasting Notes

"Dark tawny, but still some gold at rim. There is light oxidation here, but it is smothered by chocolaty, fudgy richness and an immediate impression of lusciousness. On the palate burnt orange and crème brûlée, with that toffeed layer sitting over a custardy richness in the glass, with plenty of tangy, dry, pithy and underripe pear acidity coming through. Fabulous balance of the diverse elements here. 20% ABV. Score awarded: 92 /100"
