Tasting Notes

Nose

Huge bold sherry cask notes, a distinct rancio note, turned earth, mossy wet autumn leaves and pine sap. Fortunately this one lacks that unfortunate, swift descent into a woody grave.

Palate

Bone dry and most definitely woody, but this expression has juiciness in abundance: fresh Morello cherries, mint humbugs, wet wool, molasses and flat cola. The dryness is kept.

Finish

Lingering anise, cassia bark, dried sour cherries and liquorice.

Comment

Direct and blunt, but with the right amount of intelligence and personality.
