N: Holy crap, great nose.  Rich in sherry goodness with an armangac sweetness.  Lots of dark fruits; berries, strawberry, raisins, and prunes.  Black coffee and tea give this added depth.

 

P: Starts with fruits (berries and cherries) with some bready notes.  Then it goes down hill showing dirty stale notes.  Somethings wrong with the sherry on the palate, its yeasty and metallic. 

 

F: Hints of smoke and suprisingly the finish does not stick around.

 

This was very disappointing.  The nose was phenomenal and had lots of goodness.  Palate was a major let down. So so wrong.
