    Color is old oak or almost treacle. It needs some air , I expect this to develop for a few weeks after opening the bottle. Of course it's totally a sherry monster but with some good level of sweetness and fruitiness. This is what I expected and thus my epexctation swere fully met. Great stuff!
    • Nose
      94 94
      Intense sherry wood, truck loads of dried fruits, plums, figs, dates, prunes, molasses, espresso, dark chocolate, spices, nutmeg, walnuts, xmas spice, whiffs of rubber but good - great!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, just subtle sweetness, dried fruits, dark fruits, dark chocolate, toasted bread and roasted coffee beans, sherry and oak wood galore, more spices, some herbs too, hints of leather, more on cooked fruits, hints of cooked oranges and toffee - excellent!
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, warm, intense, woody, zesty, just little drying but also still some sweetness
