Tasting Notes

"Complex and ever transforming, it has nutty aromas, wood shavings, and light citrus. But there's also some classic sherry influence--light caramel, sugar and fudge. The palate is slightly dry and gently smoky. The dark spices (cloves, nutmeg) fuse nicely with honey and baked apple. The finish is sweet, oaky and spicy."
