Nose: lovely creamy and cereals entry with a lot of brilliant oaky noted. Tasted old and elegant wood with a smoked hickory wood touch to it. A few meaty notes. Mostly game in sweet BBQ sauce. The Oloroso is present and lovely. This is a finely aged nose. I love it. Some rhubarb jam and ripe orange. Very complex nose in this.
Palate : a nice start here too. Red grapefruit as in lovely citrus with a bitter sweet edge. Sweet but not cloying sherry, that gentle marinated meat, nuts and cereal. It’s quite a big palate and it oozes flavors. One moment it is spicy and the other it is fruity then getting candied. Again there’s stuff to discover with every sip and that is brilliant. Impressive.
Finish : long and spicy with a vinous and fruity cereal finish. While wheat bread, with berry- marmalade on top.
This is a superb drop. I was a bit skeptical about it before I tasted it, bit from first sniff, it was clear it is a dram to savor. Complex, full bodies, with many layers of flavor and aromas. A pure delight.
