Nose
Intense. Oaky and earthy. Heavily sherried. Damp cider cellar. Humus. Hint of mushrooms. Bitter marmalade. Dried apples. Touch of nutmeg.
Palate
Sweet at first then the oak grip makes it very astringent. Bitter chocolate and marmalade again. Wood is overwhelming.
Finish
Dry, astringent with a sweet aftertaste.
Comment
Probably a sherry first fill. The wood is the leader. Fruit is in an oaky cage. I know some people love it that way. I look for more balance.

Nose
A little musty, dunnage warehouses, alcohol and damp wood. Then peaches, meringue and lemon curd. Dusty, like walking in a sawmill.
Palate
Pineapples, orange liqueur laced pancakes, marmalade cake, the wood is still here with oak spices.
Finish
Alcohol dries with sugared almonds.
Comment
Water helps tame the alcohol and amplifies the sweetness.
