Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Slightly dusty with glue wood polish to start. It's a bit prickly, but it softens after a while. Pink grapefruit, then peaches and lemon. Some cookie dough as well. Not the most complex nose, but lovely intense.

Taste

Just a whiff of smoke (very, very light peat), which gives it that old-timey taste. Exactly how I love it. Plenty of oak, with lemon and ginger, but also almonds and walnuts. Fruit cake as well.

Finish

Super gentle smoke, stewed pear, ginger and oak. Pretty long.

Comments

It is lightly sherried, but richly flavoured.

Nose

Du bois confit, de la poussière, des fruits pétrifiés. Un délice.

Taste

Une lente montée en puissance des goûts, pour finalement exploser. C'est puissant et délicieux, un style sherry "ancien".

Finish

Rayonnement chaud dans toute la bouche, et des picotements partout.

Comments

Une bombe !

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruitcake richness, a little furniture polish and malt loaf.

Palate: Agile with crushed mixed nuts, spice and gentle oak.

Finish: Long with more fruitcake and a hint of maraschino.

Overall: Rich and sherried but remarkable light in character.
