LIVE - #TWSTaste 22nd November - Battle of the Bottles

twstaste

#21

A rather unbusy wine week I am afraid, it was a longer process.


#22

You have no idea … the green room is electric!


#23

Hello everyone! Looking forward to this…


#24

Well I make that 8pm by my watch (not that I’m eager… :smiley: ) so let’s get going! Shall we start with the sherry - and our thoughts on the appearance and aromas? :smiley:


#25

definitely worth decanting… on the nose it is so much better now than on opening


#26

Strikingly pale to my eye.


#27

A hint of lemon yellow.


#28

On the nose
A lovely bruised red apple and a slight saltiness


#29

Straw coloured. Nutty aromas.


#30

Definitely getting nutty aromas and saline hints, didn’t get red apple until you said so @JReed and now I do get appleyness too!


#31

Maybe some ripe banana.


#32

nose: lovely aromatics coming through, with some nutty and fresh saline hints. Even a little dried apricot.


#33


We’re all going nutty at HQ, I can tell you!


#34

also getting a hint of iodine


#35

So nutty and saline! Apple, lemon and varnish but mainly nuts and salt to my humble nostrils (and as you can see, I’m really concentrating)…


#36

Pale yellow to straw with aromas of nuts and some type of fuel


#37

Very fragrant! I’m terrible at describing dry sherries, but we agree with the salty nuttiness.

I think I’m getting some kind of candied citrus peel…?


#38

yes, bingo … …


#39

Slight acetone even?


#40

Go on then, dive in and have a taste! Let us know what you think - do you love it? Marks out of 10? Food matches? Give us your best tasting note and we’ll put some of them on our social media! :smiley:
