from a purchased sample Nose: Light varnish and a little sweet leather. Develops on dates, prunes, golden raisins, and cinnamon. The varnish is a little bitter-sweet orange zest. Chocolate, caramel, and marzipan come out as this gets some air. Eventually the sherry clarifies and offers up a few sweet cherries. It's high on marmalade and jams. A few coffee and tobacco notes at the end. Gorgeous stuff.

Palate: Light and absolutely silky on entry. Nearly too drinkable. Honey, burnt orange. A few sherry notes, and then very burnt fruit cake and spices. Turns far more to tobacco and quality chocolate-coffee element. A little dry, but pleasantly so. A few brown spices and charred raisins. Light, despite some of the burnt descriptors, maybe even some menthol.

Finish: Really just a conclusion/continuation of the palate. Light, pleasant, and decent length. It's a bit darker on the palate than the nose, but it's all class and elegance.
