  • Barbeito Bual 1863

    Snoothrank:

    Incredibly rare and amazingly complex, this gem of still shows its complete spectrum of candied citrus, pancakes and light syrup, roasted walnuts, and a mineral driven finish. Simply astounding! Read More

  • Rare Madeira New York Malmsey

    Snoothrank:

    If you love Madeira and live in New York, don't buy this wine in state! I was ... song. Its sister, the Boston Bual, had a $10 homer price premium.Anyway, I've sung the praises of the Rare Wine Company's Historic Series elsewhere, but their New York Malmsey, the sweetest style of Madeira, is truly spectacular. A medium brown colored wine with... Read More

  • I have a thing for Madeira. I've never bought a bottle, but I have been lucky enough to taste some pretty cool stuff and each time I'm blown away by the complexity and enjoyment I get out of these wines.

  • Cossart Gordon Bual Vintage Madeira 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Old leather and wood greet the nose and are joined by lovely notes of molasses, gingerbread, oreo cookie, licorice, and spicebox.

The texture is downright voluptuous with a lingering vanilla tone on the sticky finish with a haunting tone of che... Read More

  • Cossart Gordon Bual Vintage Madeira 1920

    Snoothrank:

    really deep on the nose with an uncommon combination of Mexican chocolate and broth concentrate. With air gains notes of dried papaya, anise seed and cardamom. Fairly dry and with searing acidity this possesses lots of dark, coffee liquor tones with a rich mid-palate and a long finish of roasted nuts, that turns a bit bitter and clumsy. 90pts Read More
