Member Ratings and Notes

Strangely very little sherry here, if any. More on the metallic mineral water side. Dilute sweet tea and preserved citrus peel. Still strange on the palate. Sour Bosc pear rind, kiwi skin and flat sparkling mineral water.   Finishes withe the bitterness of white tea.

N: Wonderfully strange.  Vanilla and synthetic rubber.

P: Bitter and dry.  Bland for a farc, but perhaps that's just failed living up to high expectations.

Buy it for the nose and uniqueness, but don't expect typical farciness.

Light golden color. Sweet and balanced nose. Fruity (banana, a little raisin) and floral on my tongue. Shorty and whispery finish. Eminently drinkable. I've always been in the minority of really liking this release over the 1970 farclas released by K&L around the same time (although, admittedly, that one is good too). I always go back for this one.
