Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Rich builders’ tea, spices and oak tannin. Inviting and well-balanced, with a hint of dark cherry and chocolate. Quite dry.
Palate: The palate is full of flavour and really fruity, with hints of Juicy Fruit chewing gum, black grapes and ripe red cherries. Really well-balanced and full.
Finish: Sweet, with a hint of cinnamon about it. Almost rum-like.
Comment: A really sweet and delicious little number. Right strength, right balance. Good job!
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Intensely coffeed sherry. Citric and fresh, with sweet, sun dried raisin, prune and dates. It seems to have some age and with time develops a slight herbal nuance.
Palate: Light in body with plenty of citrus character. Hints of dark chocolate, dried fruit, earth and coffeed tannins follow. The spices become very gritty in the middle.
Finish: Long and remaining citric with an almost saline-like quality, but the sweet, dried fruit underpins.
Comment: For a sherry monster, it has a lovely lightness of touch.
