Very hard to spit when tasting professionally! Superb balance, particularly to the fresh finish and aftertaste. My cup of tea here, more luscious than the Grand Muscat, possibly because demand is greater for the Muscat; filled with honey, buttersc...
All Saints is far from the darkest rare tokays, but don't be fooled: this is an average of a whopping thirty-five years of age. Its aromas declare its maturity in allusions of a dusty old tractor shed, walnuts and raisins, balanced with youthful n...
Morris has never had a Tokay at the lowest level of the Rutherglen classification, as its youngest blend is still an average of eight years of age. It's distinctive and varietal, with tea leaves, sweet honey and caramel flavours. Morris leaves its...
So viscous, rich, concentrated and complex it is hard to imagine there is a level higher than the Grand, but the magnificent Old Premium (all but in name Rare) delivers it.
Pale walnut colour; has good varietal character, with a tea leaf/butterscotch bouquet, and cleansing rancio notes on the spicy palate do not diminish the varietal lift.
Dense olive-brown/mahogany; sublimely rich and focused, with obvious age, but magically fresh on the finish and aftertaste (as it should be) courtesy of a touch of much younger material.
Dark brown, with rich, tarry coffee bean aromas and an extremely complex chocolaty/mocha palate showing great age intensity and balance and tremendous length of flavour.
Hints of espresso coffee and cold tea on the nose. Lush and buttery in the mouth, with treacle-like flavours and leathery aged rancio notes.
Smells a little like malt extract with a pleasant citrusy lift. Intense dark and tarry flavours, with masses of fresh, drying spirit.
Built on a foundation of some delicious older material, this rich tokay has classic malty aromas, caramel and mocha, raising fruit and comforting tea-cake smells. The palate has bright intensity, attractive rancio complexity and buttery malt flavo...
Made from 100% Muscadelle (Tokay) A viscous twelve year old fortified wine with brilliant golden and amber colour. The palate is sweet, luscious honey and toffee with toasted nutty characters. From barrel to bottle to drink now, further ...
Interesting cold tea and rhubarb aromas and a powerful muscatel and citrus peel flavour profile. Nice level of residual sugar sweetness.
Nice nutty nose and "a palate that really delivers". Great length and depth of delicious flavours open up beautifully in the middle and mingle with lingering rancio characters.
Clear-cut varietal expression of cold tea/ toffee/butterscotch aromas and flavours; rich and full-bodied.
Complex toffee/fairy floss bouquet. More toffee characters on the palate. Good age and lovely oily mouthfeel.
Projects toffee and cold tea aromas with very slight fish oil traces. Similar characters mirrored on the palate. Very powerful flavours showing depth and length.
Glowing golden brown; totally delicious, sweet tea-leaf and caramel varietal aromas leap from the glass, with the flavour precisely tracking the bouquet. Clean spirit, sweet but not the least bit cloying.
