Superbly complex nose with great intensity, revealing a bouquet of dried fruits with notes of almonds and oak and subtle hints of toffee and vanilla spice. Medium sweet and very smooth with a superb balance of coffee and fruit flavours and a clean and sharp acidity. Lovely persistent aftertaste.
A rich and full-bodied fortified wine from the island of Madeira, aged for 10 years in oak. Blandy's Malmsey is named after one of the many names for the wine, mostly known in the UK for being the contents of the barrel that the Duke of Clarence drowns in in Richard III.
