Member Ratings and Notes
N: Thick sherry, almost burnt smelling (in a good way, like a sauce), very rich.   Smells old.  Oranges.
P: Holy sherry , Batman!  Very big, but clean and not too sweet.
F: Red cherry cough drops, some chocolate.
A very fine whisky.   B+/A-
Great woody sherry.  Long Cherry finish.

n: Cherry and strawberry jam, nice malt character, and hint of vanilla. Berry marmalade on burnt wheat toast. Heavy sherry cask influence that almost overwhelms the spirit.


t: The sherry is very forward on this with dense red fruit, mature oak, and a tease of chocolate. Black cherry juice spilled on an old leather bound book. Cherry coughdrop while chewing on a Brazil nut. Sophisticated malt enhanced with a great cask choice.  [B+.]


N: Ripe dark red fruit and tobacco.  Blackberry and cherries


P: Sherry sweetness contrasted with wood and lingering cigar smoke.


Nicely balanced with the right amount of sweetness.  This shows more fruit compared to the 2009 bottling.
