Nose
Very sweet and leathery with concentrated dried fruits. Full blooded sherry notes. With water there's a hint of struck match/rubber, then rosewood and fruit paste.
Palate
Big tannins and that leatheriness slapping on to the tongue. Cocoa nibs, sweet molasses. Needs to be loosened. With water,there's a charred earthiness. Good grip.
Finish
Walnut. Ripe fruits
Comment
A sherry bomb but has sweetness.

Nose
Oaky. Rich,heavy. Dark chocolate, sultanas. Rubbery. Hint of sulphur. Obviously heavily sherried. Floral. Hyacinth. Complex and concentrated.
Palate
Sweet and sour. Rich oak but well mastered. Dark chocolate,dates,figs, nuts. The whole package.
Finish
Lingering on oak shades.
Comment
For those who love heavily sherried whiskies. A broad shouldered lad, very well-mannered,with great stories to tell.
