The sherry can be felt directly. He brings a light sweetness and ripe fruits like peaches and apricots. However, he is very well integrated and by no means too dominant. After a short time I can perceive a clear spicy component with leather, oak and cork. The aroma is also slightly salty and maritime. This can partly be due to the high alcohol content. In the beginning it has a clear alcoholic note, which only slowly disappears over time. I can also detect citrus fruits behind the sweet, ripe fruit of the sherry.
This malt is definitely on the spicy side. It initially appears sweet on the tongue, but this sweetness is very quickly complemented by a clear bitterness and gradually pushed aside. The fruits also tend to move in the background. I especially like the citrus fruits. The spicy notes of oak also dominate in the finish. The finish is long and warming.

The aroma in the nose becomes a little sweeter and fruitier again. The spice goes back a bit. It also becomes significantly sweeter on the tongue. The peaches and apricots can then be found again. Only in the finish does the oak regain the upper hand. I think I taste some coffee in the finish now. A few drops of water are definitely good for him.
