Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

n:  Soured sherry.  Strange and strong

 

p:  Wow, sherry bomb.  Very Glendonach Revival-like but not quite as well put together.  Just a sherry bomb, period.

 
Fuji
 
N: Creme brûlée, fizzy cherry cola, flame raisins, toasted malt

 

P: Bitter grape skin, chocolate, tobacco, anise and leather. There is some herbal stuff here with as well.

 

F: Some tired sherry funk on the finish. But it accompanied by berry jam.

 
Ries
 

n: vanilla cherry coke, red fruit forward, prunes. Light matchstick smoke.

 

t: Raspberry jam that's been slightly scalded. Vanilla and oak in center with a light amount of smoke from really dry cherry wood. Touch of eucalyptus. Slightly off-kilter with a sour note in the middle, but still is a delicious sherry bomb, l really like this. Shows well for it's age.  [B/almost B+]
