Member Ratings and Notes

Looks like the dirty motor oil sample at the tire shop, but that's because it must have raped the sherry off the cask.  A nice sherry monster but it doesn't pack the complexity nor finish of Ewan's choice (sorry Duncan).

 2nd taste - A monster yes, but the brown sugar and kero syrupiness makes it so drinkable, I'll give it a B+

N:  Crazy big sherry, chocolate, and cherries
P:  Sherry monster.  Creamy chocolate thing going on sets it apart from the B+ pack.
F:  Long and yummy, brings ya back for more.

The closest I've ever come to drinking sherry -- a rich, thick, syrupy-sweet sherry -- without actually drinking sherry.  The lack of complexity here keeps the rating down, and the massively-sherried-ness needs something else to balance it.  But if you love an overwhelmingly sherried flavor, this will blow you away.  Perhaps the most monstrous sherry monster I've ever tried.  B+/A-
Very dark whiskey, this has a strong sherry-vanilla nose.  Initially thick, similar to cough syrup. Rich, chewy, light chocolate, and sherry. However, those flavors dissapear and leave a flash of alcohol. Overall this was reasonably enjoyable, but the pieces just don't fit well together, and there are many better expressions of this style.
