First a full grain / malt mixture on the nose. Floral notes mix with a slight alcoholic stinging.
There are also tropical fruits after peaches, mangoes and ripe bananas. The cereal flavors turn into a sweetness of sugared popcorn with a little vanilla. The fruits recede a little over time and let the malty notes take precedence. In the background, light dry tobacco notes that alternate with woody oak notes again and again.
Typical dark sherry dried fruits are only discreetly perceptible or maybe even imagination.
Doesn't look alcoholic at all on the palate. Alcohol is very well integrated. Spicy with a slight peppery sharpness, oily, fruity with red berries. There is also some marzipan with cinnamon. Nuts, roasted almonds with a slightly bitter taste of coffee. The beautifully spicy oak keeps pushing itself forward.
Medium-long finish, initially fruity then slightly sweet malty with a bit of woody spice, slightly bitter tannins, becoming drier, astringent,
