    The usual suspicious notes of sherry and dried fruits (no raisins) are there immediately, almonds (whole with skin), the dark chocolate still flashes a little. Is there anything else coming?
    Spicy-dry sherry notes in the taste, not very sweet, an extremely subtle fruity note in the background, then again rather the almonds, salivation is stimulated. Contrary to the nose, the alcohol is definitely present in the taste and is noticeable with a constant and subliminal tingling, it bothers me. Ginger is added.
    Long and dry finish, the alcohol is present. With water, the impressions of the alcohol increase for me.
