Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonQuite the massive winey sherry influence here (or port?). Heaps of dried fruits of all kinds, dark sugars, complex and generous. Figs, dates, raisin, all of it. And in silly doses too. Massive taste, on loads of sherry influence. Rather perfect balance with the nose. About as concentrated taste as it gets. With a small dash of water it calms down and rounds off somewhat. Really big and bad sherry monster here. Well not so bad, absolutely no offnotes. Excellent stuff.
Krishna NukalaOloroso sherry nose, lots of fruitiness accompanied by dry fruits like, sultanas, prunes, figs etc. Lots of complexity. Bit salty and dry like tannins, very smooth and spicy long finish. Blind Tasting notes of MMA 2013
