Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: The skins of Seville oranges. The apricot note of Oloroso sherry.
Palate: Beautifully combined mellow flavours: nutty, sweet, juicy sherry, very orangey fruitiness, heather, cinnamon. Very spicy.
Finish: Long, tingling. Very warming.
Comment: Delicious.
8.8
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Entrancing, lightly honeyed, sweet and gentle.
Palate: Full, succulent and buttery, whafts of sherry, nuttiness and wavering spice.
Finish: Long and warming, cinnamon prickles through the lingering sweet sherry.
Comment: Some of the 10 years brandyish elements subdued to give a rounded gentle being.
