N: Light wood and sherry. P: Surprisingly un-sherried and much less enjoyable than the 15 year, more on par with the 10 year in terms of flavor. Weak. F: Now the age emerges, but sadly in the form of excessive wood. Well, at least it's not overpriced.
Light preserved fruits, citrus and bits of stale sherry notes. Dry on the palate with metallic tea water and cherry licorice. Fudge on the finish
Older bottling with blue wax: B+
N: Ripe fruits: Soft yellow peach, nectarine, green grape, kiwi and mangos. Hints of melted butter, candle wax and white peppercorns. P: Alot of the fruit on the nose comes through along with whiffs of smoke. F: Lasting candy finish.
Older bottling with blue wax stamp and oval label. The current stuff has more sherry type red fruit and isn't as vibrant.
