Tasting Notes

Nose

Distinctly sherried, with the aroma of rubber, baking spice, sweet fortified wine and marzipan too.

Palate

Thick, sweet and winey. Rich fruitcake smothered in marzipan and doused in sherry. The intense sweet wine subsides a little, allowing some spice and baked fruits to emerge. Things take a rubbery turn with water.

Finish

All sherry sweetness, some nuts and dried currants, but a little flat.

Comment

Great if you love sherry, but for me the cask is far too dominant here.
