Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA bit low-key nose here, on some winey notes - of the fortified kind. Needs a little time to open up and does so rather well. On sweet-sourly raisin, dates. Nice compact nose. Taste more intensely on sherry style than the nose. Quite powerful on the sherry notes which are all over. Raisin, christmas cake. Dark suryp. And generous amounts of wood. Quite enjoyable.
Krishna NukalaAh! Now something very interesting! Rich fruits,lovely floral notes like gardenia in the rear.succulent sweetish honey notes, On palate the rich notes return, with raisins and similar dry fruits. Rich long lasting finish.Could have got a GM with few more complexities (Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
