Review and Tasting
Sampled before 1st May 2011
Clear, golden mahogany.
Complex nose of old sherry wine, cedar wood, cigar leaves, crème brulee, espresso coffee, liquorice and honey.
Powerful palate is equally complex, starting with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg spiced mature Christmas cake soaked in old sherry and quickly turning dry with more spice and notes of coffee beans, cigar smoke and oak.
The huge, dry finish is reminiscent of fruit cake.
