Nose
Oaky. Rubbery. Sulphur note with a butyric touch. Pepper dust. Hint of crème caramel.
Palate
Sweet. Raisins and dates. The sulphury note from the nose comes through and lingers, unfortunately.
Finish
Dry, sulphury.
Comment
A tired sherry cask? Or a tyred one? A rubbery profile which does not release much, apart from dour sulphury notes. Water does not help.

Nose
Cinder toffee, hints of treacle. Wood vanillas come through. There is a little burnt match too.
Palate
Sweet up front fading to dried fruits. The cinder toffee comes through.
Finish
Dry with raisins.
Comment
The oloroso hints are great but seem to get lost in other elements. Decent enough though.
