Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose: Sulfur and sherry.

 

Palate: Sulfur packed sherry at a lower proof with dried fruit coming in mid-palate with a touch of smoke.

Finish: Very sulfury but with a nice fruit cushion.
 I'm usually sulfur averse but the heavy fruit in the sherry gives this one a nice balance.

 

B/B+

Very dark amber color. The nose is peaty and has hints of smoked currant and oak. The palate is absolutely wonderful and balanced: spiced oak, vanilla, and burnt sugar. Very rich flavor profile and very good medium finish. I wish I had purchased more bottles than I did. [2/13/13]
