Blandy's Malmsey NV 10 year old
Mildly syrupy in texture, this is an intensely sweet Madeira balanced by racy acidity. Rancio and brown sugar aromas lead the way, followed by flavors of caramelized nuts, molasses and burnt citrus peel. Excellent length on the finish, where the crisp acids really shine.
Lovely, rich Madeira, with delicious candied apricot, ripe pear and buttercream flavors. Rich finish of brown sugar and spice. Drink now through 2009.
