P: sweet sherry, medium mouthfeel, cola gummies, cherry jam,
F: Much sweeter than the 004. Strikes me as the px influence, shorter finish on sweet fruits, ice wine, plums, chocolate mousse, slightly nutty, balsamic
Thoughts: Much sweeter and more of a modern sherry bomb. I mostly* like the Spectrum releases, but both carry (to my taste) an off note on the nose that taints the experience. The original is more cohesive with less of an off putting nose, but also sweeter. Maybe too sweet for me with not enough dryness or salinity to balance it out. Nevertheless the original wins out.
Edit: Having this again after quite a while and I stand by my original assessment. It’s got a new rubber note, like inner tube that just doesn’t fit. Other than that it’s very rich and satisfying sherry bomb. But hey that’s just me. Clearly others disagree, and fair enough.
