    Nose: It is worth to wait a bit to discover the flavors. Freshly poured, the specified 35% grain are noticeable, then develops a rich fruity note that is reminiscent of raspberries, cherries and red currants. The 46 were noticeable at the beginning, then only after very strong panning. The sherry character becomes more and more clear over time and the fruits heavier and darker. Freshly baked almond cookies joined, later finally the nuts.
    Taste: Strong onset, oak spice, slight tingling on the side of the tongue, roasted nuts, coffee, dark chocolate, I find 0% grain - the 46% are excellent, the second sip is a little more fruity, but now much darker than in the Nose, more sultana, prunes
    Finish: The oak spice comes back, but without being bitter. Dark chocolate with a low cocoa content, strong roasted espresso beans, medium to long and not expected in this price category - if not overly complex- love it
