    Aroma: voluminous aromas of old sherry with blackberries, black currants, some block malt and almonds.
    Taste: gentle, round, soft and full-bodied with sherry, milk chocolate and almost overripe blackberries.
    Finish: medium length, warming and dark with chocolate and aromas of dark berries.

    Hot, hot, hot ...
    • Nose
      78 78
      Alcoholic pungent, nutty sherry notes, dark fruits in the background, light flowery, which is a little stronger with water
    • Taste
      72 72
      The stinging continues directly in the mouth, the 57.4% more like 67+ revolutions. The alcohol is very badly integrated, it would easily have taken another 3-4 years in the barrel. Doesn't get any better with water. In addition to the stinging, I perceive some sweetness, but the alcohol drowns out everything.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Dark malt, some bitterness, mouthfeel similar to that after an espresso.
