N: An intriguing mix - lightly leathery; slightly earthy, but with a dusting of white pepper. Fruit is there - a little light green grapes, some peach, a little pineapple and apples too. Opens up to have a slightly more open sherry character.

P: Nice and chewy. A slight hint of leather; a nice bit of spiciness in the cask - white and black pepper. A little gentle heat. Abundantly fruity - apples, pears, a touch of orange, some light grapes again. 

F: Drying slightly with a good sherry-forward profile; a touch nutty, some oak influence, a little dried apple skin and a touch of pear. A touch of mint for a second on the finish. 
 
A really solid mix of fruitiness, spice, and moderate sherry influence. Very good.
