Bottled by A.D. Rattray – First fill sherry cask 5778 – 61.1%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark copper
Nose: Prunes, cassis, dark chocolate, hints of tobacco and tea, a little wood in the background.
Palate: Sweet prunes, cherries and berries, dark chocolate, strong tea, cinnamon and hints of pepper
Finish: Long, sweet and fruity.
Overall: A full-powered young sherry monster, the sweetness is rather dominant here, partly on the expense of other flavours.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
