Juicy start with cooked fruits and tinned fruits on syrup. Then slowly growing spicier (mainly cinnamon) with some Mexican chocolate disks. Gingerbread cake. Some nutty aromas and raisins. Baked apples. A lovely sherry profile. Water makes it slightly more fragrant and brings out oranges.
Good attack, sweet, now with the same spices really up front. A light peppery prickle. Rum & raisins, figs, prunes. Also fresher fruits (berries and apples). Nice, and best without water.
Borderline for those who prefer only moderate sherry influence. I like the nose a bit better than the palate. Altogether still good edible.
Hmm, creme brulee, great caramel and rich, rather heavy grape notes will not be long in coming. No sherry bomb in the nose that displaces everything else. After a while a mixture of leather and wood. Finally, quite dry sand cake.
Soft on the tongue. And here you can enjoy sherry friends. For my part, I am less happy. Something too much. The alcohol is present, but not intrusive. After a long time in the mouth not much changes, some glue, maybe even furniture polish and slightly spicy with hints of the Piedmont cherry.
Nothing special, albeit good in length.
