Tasting Notes

"The nose offers red fruits, apricots, honey, all in addition to salt and smoke. Plenty of sherry influence on the palate as well, with nuttiness and more plums and dark red fruits. Pepper and spice factor in on the finish, as smoke and peat return as well. Smooth, long and big finish. Those sherry casks are the dominant player in this one. "
