Rare Wine Company Historic Series Madeira Boston Bual Special Reserve
|Brand||Rare Wine Company|
Medium amber in color, the nose is classic cask-aged Boal -- vanilla, burnt sugar, toffee -- but with exotic overtones of cinnamon and clove. The palate has excellent weight and richness, classic tanginess, and a marvelous balance of sweetness and acidity. A beautiful mouthfeel leading to a long, refreshing finish. This is a very individual -- yet totally classic -- Bual.
Slightly richer than the Charleston Sercial, the Boston Bual boasts knockout aromas of toasted nut oil, orange peel and hints of dark honey or maple syrup. Despite the extra weight and sweetness, it's not cloying at all-the finish is mouthwatering and long.
