Nose
Manurey, straw-like marc aromas with a hint of cold tea. Herbal with apricot, banana and some coffee. The fruit becomes more oxidised and a Manzanilla sherry note comes through.
Palate
A little hard with plenty of coffee, herbs, dried grape and green nuts. Quite full with damp straw and grappa-like notes on the middle, a touch of white liquorice.
Finish
Good length, if a little drying with those grappa-like notes lingering along with a light vanilla note.
Comment
Lacking a little bit of sweetness to balance the spirit character. Ex-Manzanilla sherry finished perhaps?

Nose
Orange and lemon peels, a whiff of freshly mowed grass leading into a honey treacle, a lush sweet feeling.
Palate
The citrus strikes back, gorgeous assertive orange with delicate spices, cinnamon, flash back to drinking fino sherry, an elegant balance with no notes being out of frame and a slight pleasant sourness.
Finish
Long, round and discreet. A definite feel of sherry finish with hazelnut and a lovely dryness.
Comment
Great, floral, citrusy, nutty, an amalgam of flavours which do not supersede each other. I would gladly indulge in some more.
