A stunner in my view.
The heavy sherry is obviously here but there are also some meat notes that remind me of Bovril?
Rich blackcurrant, plain chocolate, hint of marzipan, ripe dark plum skin and date,
More potent than the usual 40%, plum, fig, hint of apple juice, blackberry jam and some . oakiness but that is expected at this age.
Starts to get dry after a while on wafer and chocolate and the blackcurrant sweetness remains.
finally some creamy caramel.
Longer than I was expecting and the dryness seems to disappear replaced by a really nice fruity sherry.
