20Y Rainha Santa tawny: soft with great length. Vanilla+currants+sugar. Perhaps not terribly complicated, but $28 great value. Might become a Wiseman household staple.

Did this bottle come from the same place as the 1994 Rainha Santa? It seems to have become one of a small number of shippers for whom the leading hits on Google are :tpf:!

I’m not sure what the vintage database currently has on them, but their importers suggest a 1985, 1987 and 1995 are available. Logical conclusion: that 1994 was another fake :wink:

A soft tawny with not much spirits at all.

Slight raisiny with caramel and green apples notes on the palate with a light nutty finish.

89 for the value!
