First fill sherry butt 13 – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Prunes, cherries, hints of tobacco and old leather, cocoa, hints of cardamom and nutmeg.
Palate: Prunes, orange zest, dark berries, tobacco, strong tea, hints of cardamom and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and dry.
Overall: Wonderful aromas on the nose are paired with a robust palate. The wood flavours are well integrated with the sherry fruit.
