Member Ratings and Notes
N: Nice rich chocolaty sherry, a little molasses, cherry cough drops.
P: Spicy dry sherry, only wish it were a little bigger.  Still very good.
F: Chocolate rum balls, wonderfully sweet. 
Nose of sherry, slight rubber, and green apples.  Palate has those green apples again, with mixed fruit.  Lightly sweet.  Very light spice.  Short finish could use improvement, though pleasant slighter traces linger at long length.  Overall this is a very quaffable beverage, yet not light-bodied.  Discovering what this was was like, "Oh, seriously?  Huh."  Another vintage that I'm not thrilled with, it's interesting how much they can vary.
