First sniff is extremely delicate, light, fruity, fresh fragrant.
But it doesn't take long to become more substantial.
Taking my time through this sample and it just keeps getting bigger.
Clearly a few large freshly mushed strawberries here.
Apple pie with sugar and cinnamon crust.
Juicy prunes and some very nice wood play around in there.
Oh, that's a full body, not much of the delicate first sniff here.
It's like eating a large piece of fluffy chocolate cake, rich and savoury.
Just the right amount of sweetness and some very gentle spice adding without disturbing to the complexity.
Sherry notes are sweet and creamy, and the 46% is spot on to drive this forward.
This is as close to a long finish as I've had in a long time.
Still on the sweet side, sherry notes turns a little meaty.
Slightly drying at the very end.
