Blue label. Always a treat to taste Tokaji, one the great historic dessert wines. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has peaches, apricots and simple syrup. Full bodied and viscous. Good acidity to counter the sweetness. The palate has orange rind, apricots, and slight minty note. Long finish with a slight bitter (orange rind) quality that works well. It went well with slightly sweet cookies. This will drink well for another twenty years.
Purchased in Budapest this summer. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is mild but nice. Aromas of ground cherries and slight dill. Interesting. Viscous texture. On the palate, much more intensity than the nose. Ground cherries and peaches. Good acidity. Long finish. Tasty. This should drink well for another ten years. It is great on its own and would work well with an apricot or peach pastry for dessert.
Honestly, expectations were very low for this. From a 250ml bottle. In the bottle, it looked like balsamic vinegar but once poured it was more the color of iced tea. Clear and bright. If served blind, the guess would be Vin Santo. The nose is nutty with caramel but also a slight honey and pear. Medium to full bodied but viscous. On the palate, this is just barely sweet. More like semi-sweet. Caramel and nutty flavors with some burnt cashew notes. Some acidity. Moderate finish. Certainly a respectable showing at age 33 from a 250ml bottle!
Light golden in color. The nose is nice with honey, ever so slight nuttiness, and some apricot. On the palate, this is sweet. Someone suggested "Jolly Rancher" candies and that is pretty accurate. I might have said honeyed/sugary peaches. There is good acidity to balance it out. A little goes a long way. This should last for decades to come.
