Deep, soft aromas of Oloroso sherry along with hints of liquorice, tobacco, treacle, burnt brown sugar and a subtle herbal character. With time some dusty spice emerges.
Soft, juicy and pretty much mirroring the nose. Oloroso, tobacco, liquorice, dried plum, date, walnuts, soft spice and a touch of violets. The spices become increasingly tannic and drying on the middle.
Long and quite succulent as the treacle arrives to balance the drying spices.
Pleasant, complex malt with all the character derived from the sherry cask.
