Sherry hogshead 9457 – 53.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Red currant jam, cherries, marzipan, treacle, leather, cinnamon and hints of cloves.
Palate: Cassis, cherries, tea, caramel, slight hints of mature cheese, cinnamon and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: A wonderful dram with the wood kept in balance by the lovely fruit and spice aromas. The nose is to die for.
Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
