    serge Colour: coffee. Nose: starts very metallic and mineral, with huge notes of
    gunflints and of ‘a gun that just shot’. Behind all that, quite some chocolate
    and Corinthian raisins. With water: more of the same, no further development.
    Mouth (neat): rich, heavily sherried, sweet and winy, PX-style. A perfect
    feeling of ‘fullness’ and no off notes. With water: loads of chocolate and figs.
    Jams. Finish: long, sweet, jammy and very chocolaty. Mint and liquorice in the
    aftertaste. Comments: you like big straight sherry? You want this sherry
    monster. But if you don’t like sherry monsters, you may pass (not sure these
    babies are still available anyway…)
