Blandy’s, Madeira, 5 Year Old, Verdelho nv The flavor profile puts together the best of Amontillado from Spain with a splash of sweetness. You’ll find a woody, nutty essence with warmth and dried oranges.
This is a weighty aperitif that celebrates bold flavours and an underlying sense of the fortifying spirit. Verdelho is a style of Madeira that I grew to appreciate during our visit there some years ago, when we would drink it on the balcony before walking along the ocean to dinner.
