Tasting Notes

"Old sherry bomb! Very aromatic with rich notes of golden raisins soaked in rum. With a little time in the glass, menthol and/or eucalyptus seem to appear. On the palate is a huge hit of dried fruits like dates, figs or prunes. Christmas cake in a glass. The finish is long and very tannic like a strong cup of black tea. This is a belly warmer indeed. "
