Pereira D'Oliveiras


Tinta Negra Sweet 5 year old


Very fine indeed on the nose, which has a lovely brandy lift over tin-smoked billy tea, toffeed banana, sticky red dates and a molasses touch. The nose is fresh and direct, wildly interesting but well-mannered and composed, with beautifully controlled traces of complexing volatile compounds. Smoked tree boughs and truffly earth keep all the dense pruney, plumskin and juicy sweetness very tidy, and a spitfire acid freshness counters every gram of gooey sweetness.
