Nose
Another sherried character which noses old. Earthy. Bracken, humus with a fungal touch. More dried fruit than the previous ones.
Palate
Sweet and sour and also bitter. The alcohol bites. Warm and spicy. With a fizzy feel. Burnt caramel.
Finish
Slightly numbing. Burnt toffee. Demerara sugar caramel.
Comment
Old but not very lively. The nose is complex and fragrant.

Nose
Big and concentrated with masses of rose hip syrup cut with fresh varnish. There's hints of camphor and incense along with plenty of dried fruits/Xmas pudding and prune.
Palate
Yes, there are big tannins on show but there's a balancing rich soft sweetness. Masses of liquorice and plenty of bruised black fruits.
Finish
Long, slightly bitter and powerful.
Comment
For sherry fiends certainly but it's certainly got balance.
