Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonWow, crazy sherry intensity. So lively. Gunpowder/matches of the very good kind spices it up. Ripe fruits in there also, below the sherry and spices. Wood, earthy peat. Staggering nose. Tastewise fully in balance. Awesome! The spent matches really spices it up and makes it SO lovely, loads of sherry influence, the ripe fruits, plums, raisin. Dry, long (very) aftertaste. Leather. Tobacco. Super.
Krishna NukalaWell, this is from the year of my birth and I am prejudiced to give a point or two more! Hints of smoke and mild peat lurking behind luxuriant fruits like passion fruit and lots of dried fruits. Complex nose. More complex on palate with extremely sweet sherry and huge finish that is ever alsting
