Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

Nose:  Red hots and hot wax.

 

Palate:  Runs a bit hot, add water.  Tastes strong without specifically tasting like anything (tastes like strong???) It's obviously sherry, but not a bit overpowering (sherrywise).  Great mouthfeel, though.

 

RETASTE 7/18/11

 

p: bitter sherry leaning toward fresh tree twigs.  B/B+

Fuji
 
Overly sweet sherry with wax on the nose.  There was a bitter sweet taste on the palate and finish.  This would have been way too sweet had there not been any bitter notes to balance things out.
Mike
 

N: Burnt caramel molasses and chocolate cherries.

 

P: Not as big as the nose would indicate. Little bitter. Sweeter on finish. Spice. Malmsey.

 

F: Lingers. Quite a nice complexity develops.
