Fuji
 

N: sweet resinous sherry, strawberries, soft yellow peaches, stewed fruits, prunes, fruit jam, flint, leather, tobacco and spices
P: Loads of ripe fruits, strawberry licorice, fruit jams/marmalades, tea, molasses
F: dries out leaving a spicy yet bitter citrus peel finish

 

A great sherried nose. The spices, leather and tobacco notes balance out the sweet fruits. So its not an over the top sherry bomb (at least for me). Medium body and lots of candied fruits on the palate. The only issue I had was that the finish wasn't longer.
