Ripe black cherry mixed with sherry and some salted caramel.
Ice cream wafers, a hints of orange and old leather with mulled wine spice.
Very spicy and fiery at first with an invasion of oak that you would not normally expect from a 20 year old.
Mixed fruit gum notes emerge which are pleasant but again the oaky bitterness is noticeable but has subsided a little.
Thankfully the bitter notes diminish with time but it is a little cloying and dry there are however some very nice orange notes coming through.
Quite long, sherry notes get a little sweeter and the spice remains.
