Composed in the rich, concentrated style for which the house is renowned, the H&H Boal 15-Year is a full symphony of flavors: Molasses, orange and gingerbread; nutmeg, clove and honey; with evanescent notes of green tea and wildflowers. This is a madeira of multiple movements, reaching its gentle apogee in the long portamento finish.
At the table: with roasted nuts (especially walnuts) and blue-veined cheeses; pâtes and foie gras; seared venison and braised short rib; robust curry stews and richer Asian dishes. For dessert: with crème caramel or brûlée, tarte tatin and classic bolo de mel. As a digestif: solo, or with a fuller-bodied cigar.
