    Really shy on the nose - I will check again after a few weeks as I just opened the bottle. On the palate it is like fireworks. Fantastic!
    • Nose
      Reluctant oak wood, hints of leather, dark fruits, toffee, espresso, dark chocolate - it's really interesting that the nose doesn't come strong despite the high abv - probably it needs more air
    • Taste
      Wow, phew, what a punch! Also very oily, thick, creamy - and now the fruits come like figs, dates, prunes, dried fruits, espresso again, toasted bread, more oak wood, but also some subtle sweetness

      Water is recommended: much smoother, more toffee and dried fruits
    • Finish
      Long and burning, more toffee and toasted bread in the end

    An old cask sherry well done, but who would benefit from having a better integrated alcohol to be really excellent. A little more complexity would also be welcome.
    • Nose
      A lot of nail polish. Then we find the acidity of balsamic vinegar so common in old sherry casks, before the arrival of dried fruits (nuts) and roasted notes (coffee). An archetypal cask sherry without sinking into the caricature, because it shows a beautiful delicacy. The woody is present, more than in the TPD, but remains well controlled. Water brings out nuts and acidity.
    • Taste
      Alcohol is a little too present, it's a shame. The palate is an interesting blend of woody flavors and citrus acidity (blood orange, tangerine). Good news
    • Finish
      It develops a beautiful woody bitterness but also a slight astringency.
