    A nose where the sherry barrel makes its mark, but leaves more than enough room for the fruit. The balance between the drier sherry notes and the sweet fruit is superb. Roasted nuts, cake, marzipan, dates and honey, bittersweet apples, but also chocolate (not too bitter), and something of old waxed leather. Maybe also some currency? Soft on the tongue. The sherry here translates into chocolate (milk), prunes and figs. Then oak, black currant and herbs. As well as sweeter and fruity notes, clever evolution. I still write coffee, just like tobacco. The oak never predominates, which makes for a very nice balance. Even in the long aftertaste: oak and herbs in harmony with honey and fruit.
