Nose
Subtle aromas of moist raisinated and plumy fruitcake. Initially subdued before the luscious sherry notes kick in. The aromas develop well with hints of herbs and green nuts.
Palate
As subdued as the nose. Too subtle? Straightforward with juicy, homogenous sherry character and building, lightly bitter, chocolaty tannins.
Finish
Short, sharp and quite citric. Pleasantly mouth-watering though with a liquorice and dark chocolate after-taste.
Comment
It's all about the sherry cask. No blemishes, but simple and ultimately for me, a little unexciting.

Nose
An unusual and quite unsettled nose which flits between instant coffee granules, shredded wheat, cherry drops, dried brown rice and rye whiskey.
Palate
A little more settled, but the spice notes are the most prevalent (not quite rye, but a style thereof) mixed with black cherries, cocoa, pomegranate and oak spice. A confusing little number this.
Finish
Milk chocolate covered coffee beans, oak spice.
Comment
Lots of flavours which ultimately confuse the drinker. Not a bad dram, just very strange indeed.
