"Armorik Sherry Finish has a rich, chocolatey quality that almost tastes like very boozy, room temperature cocoa. Roasted almonds, cashews and walnuts come in with a couple of sips, enhanced by orange zest, tart plums, yeasty shortbread, caramel and a faint hint of lavender. Finishes with long flavors and a bit of heat. "
