Tasting Notes

Nose

Immediate sherry character. Floral and muddy, like river mud perhaps, and lots of dark fruits. A little sourness, like green Bramley apples.

Palate

Raisins, cherry liqueur chocolates, and fermenting grass.

Finish

Rich, and slightly burnt fruitcake.

Comment

Big cask character, with spirit style just poking through. The spirit seemed at odds with the cask perhaps.
