Nose

Reminds me of Kavalan Solisth sherry cask expression. Similar depth and meaty intensity of flavours, almost like sherry rather than whisky. Thick molasses, soy sauce, balsamico, stewed fruits, dark chocolate, espresso. Some mushrooms too.

Taste

Molasses, demerara sugar, stewed prunes, raisins, berries. Cocoa, roasted coffee. Very rich and vibrant. Blood oranges.

Finish

Long, bitter, drying on espresso and dark chocolate.

Comments

Wonderful, complex and extremely rich, well, youngster.

Brown sherry
Nose

Big, muscular sherry character. Full with dark fruits, plums and apricots. Waves of flavours coming and going alternating with demerara sugar, dark chocolate, marzipan, herbs and polished antique wood. Elegant intensity, rich and bold. You can nose this all night long.

Taste

Wow, this one blows you away! Bulky and sweet with a massive hit of sherry. Dark fruits, plums, apricots, Sevilla oranges and brown sugar blend well with bitter chocolate, espresso and vibrant old oak.

Finish

Very long and lingering. Sweet, warm and fruity with a dry oaky spiciness. Mouth-coating and slightly astringent.

WITH WATER: Water tames the sherry sweetness with oak, spice and herbs coming to the fore.

Comments

This is a very luscious dram. Sherry shines through all the way with great fruitiness and elegance. Well aged and complex. A must have for the hard core sherry aficionados.
