Sherry butt 12043 – 55.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Orange zest, dried apricots, marzipan, toffee, waxed leather, hints of tobacco, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Chocolate cake with candied orange zest, coffee, dark chocolate, cinnamon and allspice.
Finish: Medium long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: While the nose is sublime, palate and finish feel a bit weaker, but all on a fairly high level to be fair.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
