Member Ratings and Notes
Tim
 
N: Lightly sweet and malty, smells young initially. Raw sugar; opens up to reveal more fruit and a little toffee.
 
P: Sharp somewhat dry wood which also tastes young. Light taste of leather. White pepper.
 
F: Woody, a little flash of cotton candy. Pleasantly sweet.
 
Not bad but somewhat young. The wood is a bit sharp, but the finish is pretty good.

Great sipper and great for the price.

N: Good dose of spice mixed in with lots of vegetation and sweet berries. Different types of wood: dry bamboo, eucalyptus and oak.

 

P: Pretty chewy for such a young expression. Its probably because this is a first fill sherry cask. Sherry notes are initially more tart and acidic (sour plums) with herbal and sweet blackberry jam notes revealing themselves later.


F: Dark chocolate and tobacco leaves

 
Chris
 

N: Nutty sherry, with a minty orange aspect, and quite some woos spice.

P: Orange custard style sherry, very nice, relatively dry which I like.
F: Chocolate, with a spicy sing at the end.   A very solid effort and a great deal.

 
Andy
 

n:  Nicely sherried

 

p:  Oak comes though.  Dark cherry.
