n: old school, antique sherry cask. Boiled down cherry juice with dark vanilla bean. Moist christmas fruitcake full of black raisins and cloves.
t: powerful sherry soaked oak, savoury spices, and dried fruit (prunes and smokey cooked raisins). Middle is all musty oak but with a cherry sweetness enhanced by dry leaf tobacco. Finish has a tease of smoked sea salt. Very complex as the cask enhances the flavours but doesn't overpower it into a sherry bomb.
[A/A-, I could smell this all day as perfume; wonderful nose]
