Bruichladdich Sherry Edition Oloroso 1998 vintage, 46%

Price: $100 Issue: Spring 2009 Reviewer: John Hansell

Less appetizing brine and zing, and showing more “weight” when compared to its sibling. Sweeter notes of toffee, fig, and vanilla fudge lay the foundation for mixed nuts, black raspberry, plum, nectarine, and ripe red grape. A soothing dram.
