2006/2019 cask 039 57.4% oloroso sherry cask 132147 86/84/86
Strong sherry on the nose and the palate and perhaps a little sulphur is present?
There is a slight off note here that hampers your enjoyment a little, this is because it is bitter sherry, like tart black cherries taste.
The finish is pleasantly warming
Slightly higher score than last time.

Nose lovely, palate lovely, finish very good , great balance with a little water, not quite as sweet as I remember. 90/91/91
2009/2021 cask 046 60.4% oloroso sherry cask 194500 91/90/90
Rich sherry on the nose with a Bakewell tart note, black forest gateau cake, black cherries and a hint of raspberry.
Good vibrant palate and very fizzy, it attacks your tongue, what the nose hinted at is here, there is a creaminess about this but there is also a sharp attack from the sherry which really works
Dark fruits galore, but nothing tart here, just lush dark fruits.
Nothing out of place either on the finish, composed is the word.
Neat, the spicy sherry attack is really powerful and very nice.
