Errazuriz have long helped define the style for Chilean Merlot; it is full-bodied, generous and richly fruity with succulent blueberry and plum characters together with delicate savoury notes of coffee, chocolate and toasty oak, extremely stylish easy drinking.
Blandy's Duke of Clarence is fined and does not require decanting. It is a superb accompaniment to dessert dishes, especially fruit, cakes, chocolate puddings and soft cheeses. It has been bottled when ready for drinkingand will keep for several months after opening.
A classic Barbadian rum, Plantation 5 Year Old benefits from ex-bourbon cask barrels and Cognac barrels used in its maturation process. The flavour this delivers is unlike any other rum and gives its nose an intense leathery profile with spicy cinnamon and aromatic coconut too. On tasting Plantation 5 is surprisingly sweet with clear notes of molasses and that leathery depth from the scent. Salted butter and allspice add a distinguishing finish and ensure the fire remains strong to the last drop.
