Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Nose has rich sherry-like notes (I say sherry-like since this was matured in a "Japanese wine cask", but clearly similar to a sherry butt), tobacco, dried leaves, vanilla extract.
P: Creamy and light with sherry-like flavor and citrus notes.  A little wood spice.
F: A little cherry sweetness and a lot of enjoyable abv numbness.
Tasty.
