    sergeColour: bronze – mahogany. Nose: punchy but not overpowering. This one is on
    full sherry mode, as expected; lots of chocolate and Smyrna raisins, burnt cake,
    rum, fruits in liqueur, bigarreau cherries, dried prunes… And some great notes
    of old fortified wine as well, such as Maury, old Rivesaltes… Something of an
    old Bourgogne too (Chambertin – the black cherries indeed). A sherry monster for
    non-sherry freaks, maybe, as the balance is almost perfect, not oafish at all.
    It smells more and more like a great old red wine, in fact… Wow! Mouth: oh, this
    is even nicer. Some big, bold sherry, very creamy but not clumsy at all. Tokay
    essencia, caramel sauce, prunes, ling honey, old tangerine liqueur, fruitcake,
    pecan pie… Absolutely perfect, and not the faintest hint of rubber or sulphur. A
    grand sherry monster, not the embodiment of complexity but a superb balance and
    richness, with a long and almost invasive finish, on alcoholised fruit jams and
    old Cognac. Wow, congrats, Duncan!
