82
Nose
Sherry, tobacco leaf. Huge notes of sweet Oloroso. Shoe polish. Cloved orange, smoky wood.
Palate
Smoothness meeting sweetness. Christmas cake flavours, dark chocolate.
Finish
Sensuously lingering, laced with spices. Smoky aftertaste.
Comment
Pure mastered (and mastering) Oloroso style. But where is the spirit contribution?

Nose
Lots of Oloroso notes: rubber, walnut, dried fruits.
Palate
Good weight, nutty, soft, silky and fruity with some turfy smoke.
Finish
Sweet and sherried.
Comment
Good, but it could be any heavily sherried malt. Lacks an individual personality.
