CS Collection – Sherry butt 105516 – 55.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Nose: A nice sherry nose with chocolate, raisins, dried figs, hints of tobacco and leather, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Raisins, figs, darkk chocolate toffee, orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg and a light woody driness.
Finish: Medium long, dry and fruity.
Overall: If it wasn’t for that somewhat weakish finish, I would call this a great sherried dram.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
