This bottle would be about a (unopened) yr old now, when it was bottled however is a mystery. (All fortified makers with a NV product should follow the Spaniards lead and date stamp).
The colour is a ruddy, red brown colour – its quite dark for a base level Muscat. The nose is treacly & honeyed, but without that absolute raisin richness. The palate is warm and rich, but its short and with a heaviness that lingers and detracts from the whole palate. Its not stale, but the richness is just not there.
A very long way from the Rutherglen highlights of Morris, Chambers or Campbells, though i would question whether the freshness plays a part here. 15.5
