Nose: Difficult to take apart, a burned down earthy note, some vanilla and some orange as well as orange peel, blood orange, slightly burnt caramel and many herbs. Sherry flavors, if any, are very reserved and have not occurred to me yet. A slight bittersweet chocolate note I mean to hear and generally a good to hear acid is persistent to feel. Taste: Subtle sweet with a minimal vanilla, soft with only a very slight tingle. Again, a burnt caramel and an earthy / smoky note can be felt. The sweetness remains and something like apple and light grapes come to my mind, but also the herbaceous aroma front paves the way to my taste buds. In the mouth, I rather think of sherry barrels, if only proportionately low. A bit of bittersweet chocolate, lots of herbs and some blood orange and orange shades make the finish. Real bitterness is not to be found, but the grades he has to offer are interesting. Conclusion: Slightly more vol.% Alcohol would certainly be good for the malt. He does not mess with his flavors and his current price will be responsible for not getting me a bottle.
