Nose
Juicy treacle and coffee coated raisin, prune and walnut. Pure, earthy, slightly dusty Oloroso notes show a light Armagnac-esque rancio. Toffee, orange marmalade, burnt wood and green nuts follow. A clean sherry monster.
Palate
An expansive mouthful of chewy, malty treacle and molasses, balancing citrus and alcohol. Burnt raisin, prune and lightly bitter chocolaty tannins.
Finish
Long and juicy with plenty of burnt wood, treacle and citrus.
Comment
Sherry monster aficionados will be bashing down the doors to get hold of this!

Nose
Smells almost thick. Buttermilk pancakes, with lots of added butter, strawberries and maple syrup on top along with a bit of struck match and burnt cake notes.
Palate
Wonderful mouthfeel. Thick and oily. Just a bit of background smoky / sulphur, along with more up-front spice, brown sugar, raisins and cake. Reminds of Welsh cakes but with red fruits.
Finish
Tacky, sweetness that sticks to back of palate, along with a mid-palate dash of struck matches and cream.
Comment
Sweetness balanced out by that hint of struck matches and something savoury.
