    Powerful and rich sherry dominate the nose, with dark berries and prunes alongside honey, old leather, walnut oil, dark chocolate, a hint of pomegranate molasses and something meaty, and spicy mulled wine. Also a waxy aspect to it that I really like. Awesome nose! Water opened it up further and allowed more of the spicy notes through. Very well balanced on the palate, with the sweet fruity sherry aspect an ideal counterpart to crushed black pepper, dark chocolate, roasted hazelnuts and a lovely waxy mouth feel. Medium length finish that is quite drying, but stops short of bitterness. Great cask selection from the chaps at Lockett Bros!
