Member Ratings and Notes
Very sherry, more so than the color suggests.  Soft, thin body.  Somewhat unremarkable. 
Cinnamon nose. The palate is clove-cinnamon goodness. 
Fruitish.  Long smooth finish. 
A good, strong, sherry nose.  Cherry.  Some smoky notes, mild complexity. 
Lame and too forward, no subtlety or surprises of Flava-Flav. 
Rich sherry but simple. 
N: Deep maple and oranges.
P: Big, full bodied, fruity nectar.  F'in good!
F: The palate slowly fades. 
Nose:  Very mild wine and alcohol notes yielding to spice. 
Palate:  Syrupy, mild sherry, with malt, chocolate and grass in the background, a bit hot.  Chewy mouthfeel. 
Finish:  Sherry dominates.

Some flaws but very drinkable.
