Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonAttractive orangey sherry style here. On dates, raisin, but not overpoweringly so at all. Still fresh. Mandarins. Fruity, a bit tropically so even, ripe, special I'd say. Taste more on drier sherried classic style. Raisin. I get some riper sweeter fruits only in the aftertaste. A hybrid sherry fruit fusion this one. Not bad anywhere.
Krishna NukalaLovely varnish accompanied by rich dry fruits.Lovely wood. This is super stuff on palate. Very luxuriant and delicious smooth and spicy with organics on the finish (Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)
