Nose
Chocolate and bourbon biscuits and a hint of resin.Dried black cherry and molasses mixed with Highland toffee. This has greater power than the previous pair
Palate
Very nutty and again an immediate tightening,has an added meaty undertow. Leathery and bold.
Finish
Dry.
Comment
Better than the previous two with a certain muscular strength.

Nose
Discrete then opening on pastry notes. Bakewell tart.Figs. Raspberry jam. Quite enticing. And appetising.
Palate
Sweet and smooth but not for long. A big spicy explosion teases the tongue and leaves a dusty feel.Ginger,pepper. Quite numbing.
Finish
Long,spicy,warm.
Comment
Ah,when sherry gives more than wood,the tastebuds give an applause.
