Glen Avon (Glenfarclas) 1958/2007 49yo Gordon & MacPhail 40%
Some furniture polish/vinegar on the nose before the sherry emerges, Heavy tea notes like bag left in too long, extremely vinous

Dry sherry, but lighter style than the nose suggests, slightly bitter and drying, then gets very dry´with some cocoa/amaretto style to the finish - almost rum-like at times.

A great one for an vanilla ice cream dessert!

89/100! (tasted 05-11-2011)
