Nose
Oloroso sherry with prune, walnut, raisin and dusty spice. A little rose petal spirit note beneath but the clean sherry is the overriding character.
Palate
All sherry cask, like the nose. Molasses, prune, cinnamon and walnut. A little iron on the middle; the combination of tannins and alcohol make it quite dry.
Finish
Long and sherried with the alcohol making it quite mouth-watering. A dry, spicy flourish.
Comment
It has a spotlessly clean sherry finish.

Nose
At first there is a lot of spirit, but with time in the glass this develops into oak spices, deep leather and cloves. There is a hint of star anise, too.
Palate
A warm sweet and oily palate, with a splash of water this really reveals itself to be quite a tasty dram of the malty, honeyed goodness.
Finish
More honey and malt, and Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.
Comment
Lovely and balanced, warming and honeyed.
