Member Ratings and Notes
N: Leather, chocolate, Fig Newton, molasses.
P: Massive.   Chewy spicy sherry with figs, raisins, and berries.  
F: Still tasting it the morning after. 
Nose is like a fresh-baked raisin-and-pumpernickel loaf.  And guess what?  The palate tastes just like it too!  Neato.  An amazing blend of awesome spice, deep dried fruit, cinnamon, and yes, raisins and pumpernickel.  A complex whiskey to ponder while watching obscure French New Wave cinema or whatever artsy-fartsy stuff it is that you folks do. 
Interesting grainy/fruity nose.  Stong and oily with a long and unusual finish.  Really lingers (in a good way).  I like this. 
Nose of vanilla and oak.  Baseball glove. Oily brown sugar, spice and leather on the palette.   
Very interesting, malty, almost rye nose. Initially light sherry in the mouth, and then the sherry simply explodes, huge, almost overpowering sherry and malt. Really remarkable. A mid-length finish. The malt character distinguished it from typical sherry monsters, and I really enjoyed this.  

n: sulpher, caramel


p: walnut oil and molassas.  Oats.
