Colour: That sherry bomb colour. Ha Ha. Dark Mahogany. Deep amber.
Nose: Fantastic nose. Brown sugar. Almost like that spiced candy that they give in spas alongside the beverage. Prunes, Ripened plums, cocoa, butter roasted hazelnut, a burnt smoky note thats phenomenal, some earthy button mushroom note. Some mossy feel followed by a heavy menthol note but rhubarb salt. ????
On the palate, it still reigns supreme. Mouth coating, heavy smokiness tangled with dark fruits & prune sweetness. Very nutty. Some roasted nuts (hazelnut, pecan) but a creamish buttery feel to it alongside the nuttiness. Beautiful. Very layered and bustling flavours. Fennel, cloves, powdered cinnamon. ????
Finish is medium with warm peppery notes. Pickles. ????
A lovely Bunna. Yes, it is a modern sherry bomb. I hate to say I loved this modern sherry bomb. Top class. Very much fun. Very much wild. Very much enjoyable.
This one’s a clear winner.
