This is an overwhelming sherry monster! It has deep, mouth coating and complex flavours. It feels like drinking concentrated sherry syrup but that with a huge alcohol spike. At first it just overpowers your senses but gradually it brings the flavours in layer upon layer of concentrated goodness. The nose is slightly more pleasant than the palate. It can handle a fair amount of water and this can help to tone it down a little and bring out the more intricate and delicate flavours hiding in this dram.
Yep, a very lovely yet fierce sherry monster!
