    SMWS Tasting Notes: The first-fill of a sherry cask has given a fine, dark-gold colour and a sweet, dulcet nose, like a well-behaved bar of toffee. Fruity too, with water it smells of citrus, pears and apples, like the first dip into a packet of fruit gums. The flavour is malty and sherried, though not overly so: the sherry wood is as self-effacing as the best of benefactors. The aftertaste is of liquorice.
