Member Ratings and Notes
Nose has all sorts of stuff going on -- dried fruits, plus notable ethery/industrial stuff and some smoke hints.  Very intriguing nose, so let's see... Wow, the palate delivers on the nose.  Again there's an industrial/chemical aspect, but a good one.  Fruitiness for sure -- cherries and green apples seem distinct.  Also marzipan.  I'm not sure why I like this as much as I do, because there's some weird synthetic-tasting stuff going on.  Yet, I do like it. 
N: Deep and orangy sherry with an animal muskiness, then plumb!  Very distinctive plums.
P: Wow, big sherry with an off-beat fruitiness.
F: Spice, figs, long and lingering.
Wonderful nose, great palate, good finish.
