Tasting Notes

Nose

Full, rich and sherried with hints of earth, brine, dusty peat and plenty of leafy Oloroso. Balanced, with floral barley and honey which can be discerned amongst the coffeed prune and walnut.

Palate

A little homogenous and sherry blanketed. Hints of peat and dark chocolate come through along with a touch of spice and bitterness from the oak. \n

Finish

Long – a lovely intensity of sherry spices and bitter chocolate. \n

Comment

It’s a pity that the palate didn’t display the balance of the nose. Good, clean sherry though.
