The H&H Tinta Negra Single Harvest 1997 is a colheita bottling: an early-bottled vintage wine. A distinctive and even notorious Madeira, the 1997 underwent an unusual élevage: some of the blend aging in new Iberian and American oak barrels destined for a Scotch whisky distillery. Made in the "Fine Rich" style—akin to a rich Boal or light Malmsey—it is the wood influence that distinguishes this edition: redolent of golden, vanilla-tinged citrus fruits, smoke and whisky-barrel oak tones—fascinating as it is unique.
