Tasting Notes

A wonderfully perfumed and elegant style of sherry on the nose evoked stone fruits, dried flower petals, chocolate orange brownies, sticky toffee pudding and plum wine. In the background came a scent of anthracite soot, liquorice and quince jelly. With water we found PX sherry, cream soda, bramble jam and earthier notes of white mushroom, aniseed and cocoa powder. The neat palate was classical, combining pipe tobaccos, dark chocolate nibs, bitter marmalade, almonds and toasted macadamia nuts. Water made it more herbal and resinous, as fruit teas met bergamot, wintergreen, strawberry wine, earthy leaf mulch and dried mango. This matured for 11 years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.
