The nose hits you hard with sulfur, then spices come out, particularly ground ginger and gingersnap cookies. The palate is sufured sherry with some fruit at the back which gives the finish a nice, fruity/earthy note, almost like a good Cognac.

 

This is a good example of sulfur interacting well with the fruit of the sherry and not taking over, though still being quite present.
