Tasting Notes
Ho-cheng YaoC: brown. N: malty, light earthy, sherry influence. sulfur. P: nutty, medium body, medium long finish. nice but just easy dramming. C: easy going one.
Craig DanielsColour: an unusually vibrant & bright amber orange with red/brown highlights. Nose: sweet, cream sherry, fudgy, earthy, cigar humidor, waft of earthy peat, some shoe polish, french polish. Palate: rounded and sweet with toffee/fudge, a hint of roast beef, slightly smoky, then a dry sherry kicks in and an astringent leafiness. Finish: burnt toffee, tobacco leaf, autumn leaves and leather with a slight tannic bitterness. Dries in the aftertaste and stays ashy/leathery. Comment: cleaner than the usual offerings with a lingering ashiness and charred leaf character.
Oliver KlimekColour: Dark amber - Nose: Raisins, leather, orange zest, cocoa, polished wood, cinnamon and nutmeg. - Palate: Raisins, prunes, orange zest, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper. - Finish: Medium long, fruity and spicy. - Overall: This sherried dram is quite spicy with a strong and flavourful initial punch. But it is not overly complex, and the finish is surprisingly short.
