Good continuation of a theme, and quite addicting.
The nose is butterscotch candy.  The palate is buttermilk , less than the nose.  So light and smooth.  Nothing is off-putting.  Very sweet and drinkable.  Goes down smooth.  Candy like quality.  The finish is long and satisfying.  I get why a lot of people only want to drink this.  It's so easy to drink.
bummer....back to where it was before....after the great leap they took in 1989, I thought this would also be spectacular.  But, the floral notes are taking over again and killing that yummy sherry fruitiness.  Sorry, still great stuff just not as great as it could be (or has been).
