Palate - chewy and deep, black pepper, pan charred spices, liquorice, orange blossoms, multifaceted - Figs, into fresh berries, into dark fruits, into lollies. HUGE amount of lush oils to coat the pie hole which is such a nice compliment to the otherwise dryer expectations.
Finish - loads of burnt sugar and honey, oak and oil, jam, nice and round finish, not super dry as expected. Medium finish makes you reach for another swig.
Overall - brilliant balance of cask and spirit here, BIG and beefy, sweet and rich, it’s a quintessential Sherry BOMB that for the age, being a single cask and price is EXCEPTIONAL value.
