This version is not obviously sherryish, but still manages very big flavours indeed. I'm very impressed.

Finish: Cookie-like dryness.
Comment: This version is not obviously sherryish, but still manages very big flavours indeed. I'm very impressed.
Nose: Light soft and creamy. American cream soda, custard and cooked apple/bread and butter pudding with nutty malt underneath.
Palate: Very soft and sweet. Straight down the middle.
Comment: Very soft, direct. Good blending material, but as a single?
