    Aroma: delicate, dark raisins, sweet and sour note like from cranberries whipped with sugar, light strokes - coffee with milk, chocolate, vanilla roll with topping, a hint of dressed skin, blooming lilac. After 20 minutes, vanilla, pastries and malt are even more manifested. The aroma is very complex, it takes time for all these nuances to open, the base here is raisins and sweet and sour berries on which everything is layered.

    Taste: saturated, first felt the astringent astringent peel of grapes with a stone, dark raisins, prunes, then light red pepper, spices, concentrated blackcurrant jam. Moderately sweet, pleasant light tannin.

    Finish: longer than average, almost a repetition of taste, light oak, the same raisins and berries, hint of hint of herbal liquor Yegermaster, resin of a fruit tree.

    Bottom line: a very high-quality, smooth sherry 18, I especially liked the aroma, the main thing is to give it time, a raisin-berry theme but playing with different light echoes. Taste and finish are also on top, 43% are quite appropriate. The malt is even balanced, but in this I find a minus, too boring, there is no brightness
