I must say on first sniff it is almost bourbonesque.
You can smell those grains and they are great, always mix well with the sherry notes.
Felt tip pen, strawberries covered in sugar, red Roses, red toffee apple, summer fruit pudding.
I could sit and smell this all night.
This is superb straight from the off, bitter fruits, just like chewing on a Rowantree's fruit pastilles.
After that burst of dark fruits the old grains come in from the back with that butter and cream on a scone notes followed by a dollop of raspberry jam.
The texture on this is second to none, just roll it around your mouth and enjoy what it has to offer.
The finish is medium to long and everything just fades very softly leaving a lovely creamy texture on the death.
