Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
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. 
Ries
 

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+.]

 
Fuji
 

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.
