The sherry finish becomes "paler" with time / air in the bottle, and the grain is more prominent. Still okay for the price, especially on the nose.
Beautiful sherry nose, very set, with a good dose of age flavors, mellow grain and solid, older wood. I particularly like that the barrels do not look too fresh, for example, there are no dominant white oak notes, as you know them from bourbon - or from sherry cask fillings from US oak, where the wood was still very fresh. Surprisingly good, even for 40%.
Red-fruity, sweet-sour, nutty, slightly woody-prickly, and unfortunately also a bit schnapps at the end - in the end the grain comes through with a hollow neutral alkali taste.
See above. A little hollow / empty here too.
