The 20 year old Madeira from Blandy's is a reddish yellow in appearance. It gives way to an enticing herbal, tobacco and floral nose. In the mouth with its whiff of cigar, the accent is on the tobacco which infuses its dried fruits and is balanced by a toffee apple sweetness and tang. A clear beam of acidity makes for a long, very long, finish with an attractive woody textural timbre. An elegant and complex medium rich Madeira, wrote Sarah Ahmed.
Decanter Magazine wrote "golden honey, beeswax, citrus and marmalade on the nose. Fine, elegant palate with citrus peel and toffee characters. Subtly complex with a peppery finish.
