Nose
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.
Palate
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.
Finish
Long and quite succulent as the treacle arrives to balance the drying spices.
Comment
Pleasant, complex malt with all the character derived from the sherry cask.

Nose
Thick rubber bands, some salted caramel. The rubberiness is quite dominant.
Palate
Dry and biting on the palate, with salted caramel again, some moist oak notes and an underlying spirit note.
Finish
Lacking in complexity and balance.
Comment
This one isn't quite to my liking.
