    We don't have a very modern sherry profile here, imho the barrel is not sherry seasoned, but a real long-term maturation barrel. That puts the ambitious price into perspective. Delicious drop, whether it is worth the 130 you have to decide for yourself. If you are into the dusty sile of a dry Rioja, you are in good hands here. The price is too ambitious for me.

      Heavy sherry notes fill the air, old chest of drawers, leather, behind it boiled fruit, not too sweet, it looks much older. Spices, lovage, tarragon, again the Chesterfield garnish - I like old school

      The 52.7% are noticeable and only moderately well integrated. On the spicy side, the barrel aromas dominate. Dry, dusty, tannins.

      The taste continues. Leathery, dry, old school, it fades away in a medium length. There is a lack of complexity for more points, although very tasty

    On the nose an old leather chair mixed with an Oldtimer garage. On the palate wet tobacco leaves, again leather and really dark chocolate.
    .
    This one is really not for the faint hearted - but right down my alley!

    Powerful sherry bomb. Pleasantly spicy and strong.
    • Nose
      Syrupy, raisins, leather, old oak furniture, plums.
    • Taste
      Sweet and very slightly salty. Somewhat herbaceous. Dark chocolate. Pleasantly dry. Hazelnuts. Fine, pleasant bitterness on the edge of the tongue. After eight chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium length and chocolatey. Pleasantly spicy.

    A very tasty young sherry bomber. Now nothing to make you nervous. But besides the sherry it has a little more to offer.
    • Nose
      Sherry, of course. It's going in a pretty dark direction. Blackberry jam. Aronia juice. Sloes. Tobacco and leather. Nutmeg. But also rotten wood. In addition, certain dirty notes and suggested matches.
    • Taste
      At first a sweetness like rock sugar and molasses. Then then clear, but still pleasant for me, spice. The wood together with the alcohol convey strength. Then a few herbs. Josta berries. Also maritime notes.
    • Finish
      Tart chocolate pudding with plum jam. Leather and tobacco again. Wood wort.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Raspberries, black currants, cloves, lovage, old wall units, also a trace of leather
    • Taste
      87 87
      slightly peppery, but above all clearly astringent-tart start, wood-heavy, dried herbs, lightly burnt plum compote, salted caramel
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium length, dry, leathery, espresso, behind it a few dark berry notes
