Tasting Notes

I have tasted the 1927 Bastardo on two or three occasions and it is always a great Madeira. Having originally come from the Adegas do Torreao family, it has a swaggering bouquet of tangerine, beeswax, dandelion and a touch of sea foam. The palate might lack a little delineation, but it has a bravura quality with unashamed tangy orange peel, Seville orange marmalade, lemon peel and nutmeg, with a touch of walnut informing the oxidative finish. This is a Bastardo with braggadocio.

Score: 90Neal Martin, (202), August 2012
