Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose of sherry and port, and Fig Newtons.  Tinges of smoke and sulfur.  The palate is less exciting than the nose advertised, though good.  Sweet and peppery, with plums, sherry, and dried random fruits.  Mint emerges in the medium-long finish.  This could use more dimension, but it's tasty, and I like it.

N: Nutty sherry.
P: Interesting combination of sherry and organic notes.  Big.  Banana fruitcake.  Tasty.
F: Lingering sherry, gets slightly tart but no big deal.   A lot of wood comes out in the finish.
