A different blend of Pedro Ximénez and oloroso sherry was created for each of the coopers before seasoning the European and American oak casks. Those casks were used for a finish of up to 3 years.

Tasting Notes

"Pretty richly sherried with some clear dry oloroso notes, but also more sour, aceto balsamico notes commonly associated with Pedro Ximènez sherry. Hints of fudge and toffee accompanied by orange zest and rum raisins. We're off to a good start. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but flavorwise we're in good territory. Think chocolate truffles and a warming spiciness with cinnamon and cloves. You'll find a bit of orange liqueur in the background as well."
