Nose
Sherry, sherry and sherry again. Bovrils, Marmite, burnt tyre. Date molasses. Musty cellar. Hint of earthy mushroom. Dry walnuts.
Palate
Heavily sherried. Currants marinated in a spicy syrup. Dates and figs, with a touch of dried apricot. Walnut peel. Bittersweet.
Finish
Rich and spicy. Sweet oak.
Comment
So sherry… Dark Oloroso wipes out all maltiness. Unbalanced but sherry fanatics will love it.

Dave Broom

75
Nose
Grunty but mellow. Ripe fruits, pot pourri, cold coffee, kicking up wet leaves in the winter. Lightly waxy with a hint of phenol and furniture polish.
Palate
Silky, moving into fruit compote, peaches in red wine, sultana. Fine tannins. Has depth.
Finish
Tingling. Bitter chocolate, honeycomb, light smoke.
Comment
A grumbly kind of cove.
