    SMWS Tasting Notes:

    The first comments were ‘wonderful’, ‘warm’, ‘embracing’ and ‘a Sherry lover’s dream’! We were further captivated by the aromas of walnuts, dates, raisins and tamarind, and when we took a sip there might have been the slightest hint of a struck match. What followed was truly superbly nutty, like a bone-dry Amontillado sherry with walnut cake, leather and even the slightest hint of smoke. Diluted we prepared a pork schnitzel with onions, bell peppers and mushrooms in a paprika spiced sauce and we washed it all down with a glass of Icelandic Björk birch liqueur – certainly for the more adventurous souls!

    Nice sherry dram, which is a bit too dry for my taste and is dominated by the oak. The alcohol is well integrated. With water much rounder at the back, but also loses some of the dried fruit.
    • Nose
      Great sherry nose with raisins and dried dates, roasted apple with cinnamon, dark honey, roasted hazelnuts, and brown sugar. The oak brings fresh garden herbs, white chocolate and red pepper. Everything is carried by a great note of caramel.
    • Taste
      Middle start, oily mouthfeel. Starts out fruity, especially the fried apples and figs are back, but not too sweet. Lightly burned caramel. Then comes the oak, lots of herbal notes together with dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium length, now becomes very dry and astringent. Pepper, strong oak, espresso, and the now almost burnt caramel.
