tomintoul12oloroso

Colour: Golden Sherry

Nose: A holiday feast of aromas, strong marzipan covers the steaming Christmas pudding aroma. Sitting alongside is a glass of Port with the surprising addition of banana fritters.

Taste: A selection of sweet delights carried by Chitty Chitty Bang Bangs Childcathcer. strong aniseed balls and Black Jacks open with the warming taste of treacle tarts and brazil nuts tingle the edges.

Finish: Strength and smoothness of a good sherry, slightly smoky but not overpowering. All round a very decent dram.

Price: An extremely affordable £31, very good if you can find it under £30.
