Tasting Notes

Nose

Supple, deep aromas of walnuts, prunes, cold tea, orange zest, figs and sticky treacle. Balanced with citrus. Plum, black-currant, green nuts and a light wood smoke note. Water sweetens, gives a Cognac-esque character.

Palate

Soft and sherried. Treacly with prune, walnut, dried grape and sweet, edgy spice – coriander and cinnamon. Water emphasises the fruit and herbal notes.

Finish

Long and spicy. The tannins make the finish a little dry but the treacle and dried fruit offset. Lovely mocha after-taste.

Comment

Pure, clean, natural sherry character.
