Blandy's Malmsey 5 year old
Fresh and pure-tasting, with plenty of creaminess to the dried apricot, citrus peel and butterscotch flavors. Presents an unctuously spicy finish, powered by rich minerality. Drink now through 2045.
The non-vintage 5-Year-Old Malmsey has a more oxidative nose than expected and ,like the Bual, there is too much volatility shrouding the aromatics. The palate is light for a Malmsey, with a pleasant tangy marmalade entry complemented by Clementine and quince. The finish is nicely composed and pure.
