Tasting Notes"The Blandy’s 1976 Bual was aged for 46 years in very old oak casks. This bottling is limited to 983 bottles plus assorted larger formats. It has a generous bouquet with a lovely warmth. Allspice intermixes with cardamom, curry leaf, dried honey and light wood varnish scents that become more prominent with time. The palate is beautifully balanced with heart-warming purity. With fine tannins and a gentle grip, this is very harmonious, with just the right amount of spice to enliven the finish. Not the most outgoing Bual you will find, almost low-key in a way, yet you’ll keep coming back for another sip. Divine. 94 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"Grapes from Calheta on the south coast: deep amber / mahogany; rich and profound on the nose with dried fruit compote and heady intensity; wonderful intensity of flavour, the tang of tawny marmalade and powerful richness (115 g/l residual sugar) offset by bracing acidity which persists in parallel with dried fruit richness all the way through the finish. This goes on and on. Glorious wine: one of a Blandy quartet from this successful vintage. Some wines from this era have more than a touch of rancio about them but this is clean and focused. 19/20 points." Richard Mayson

Tasting Notes"The Blandy’s 1982 Verdelho contains 108g/L residual sugar and was aged for 40 years in very old oak casks. Deep amber in color, it has a well-defined, mellow bouquet with mahogany antique bureau, crème brûlée, singed leather and bonfire aromas that cohere nicely in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins and just the right amount of acidity to counter that sweet edge on the finish. This feels like an animated Verdelho, with impressive tension and real finesse coming through toward its slight oxidative finish. This is a classy offering. 1,206 bottles produced. 93 points" Neal Martin,Vinous.com------"From grapes grown at Porto Moniz on the north west corner of the island: deep amber - mahogany; lifted with immediacy on the nose, spiced prune, date and dried fig richness come singing from the glass, verging on high-toned (1.3 g/l volatile acidity); glorious quince marmalade richness (108 g/l residual sugar) and intensity offset by penetrating rapier-like acidity, backed by bitter-sweet astringency, lovely focus mid-palate with a long, fresh multi-dimensional finish redolent of dried apricots and citrus. Beautifully poised. 19/20 points." Richard Mayson------"Smells of manuka honey and molasses-sticky gingerbread, of heady tropical-rainforest flowers and glue. Spinning with intensity, luminous, like liquid jacquard silk, lacquered inlaid wood; absolutely shimmering with life. It holds in the mouth with the trembling, almost-spilling tension of a dewdrop on a spider's web as dawn light shafts through it turning gold into green and pink into red and blue shadows into indigo. Peach, apricot, warm pecans, cinnamon and the forest-floor scents that rise up cool and yet warm as you kick through the crisp crackle of coppery autumn leaves. Just stunning. 19 points" jancisrobinson.com (TC)
