I have heard a lot of mixed reviews on this bottle. It's a 12 year old that has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks, before being finished in Portuguese port casks (called pipes).
The colour is deep, dark and rich. You can see the port influence.
Nose. Orange, oak and spices.
In your mouth it is warm, silky smooth, slightly peppery, rich dark chocolate and oranges. I find the finish fairly short and sweet. This is well balanced, fruity and extremely drinkable.
Verdict. Buy it, drink it, enjoy it, don't over think it.
