Color: Deep amber
Nose: Powerful sherry start. Rich on dried
and ripe fruit, earth, oak, pepper, sultanas, figs, malt sweetness,
tangerines. Needs a couple of minutes to settle and open properly.
Taste: Sweet, smooth and oily. Very good! Nuts,
almonds, ripe fruit, cherry, pepper, caramel, vanilla. After some
minutes herbal notes and spice begin to be more prominent: black and
white pepper, nutmeg, pine needles and tobacco leaves. With water it
gets more custardy and herbal. Complex and rich.
Finish: Medium-length Mon Chéri`ed finish. Vinous and spicy. Very enjoyable in general.Needs a couple of minutes to open up. Better with water, it wipes out its sourest tinges.
