Tasting Notes

Nose

Primal but not raw nose of dense, herbal Oloroso sherry with hints of crushed grape, mint, thyme, heather, berries and a touch of wheat flakes. Water brings out some mocha notes.

Palate

Full, clean, Oloroso sherry with dried prune, walnut, treacle and neat masking alcohol. Water makes it a little homogenous.

Finish

A little bitter with herbal spirit notes coming through to reinforce youthfulness. Dilution mitigates a little of the bitterness and emphasises the spices.

Comment

It’s a young sherry monster, which could have come from anywhere.
