Nose: Sherry or not , this one is fragrant with quite some orange peel, cereals and woody sawdust. Vanilla and honey. Fresh is the word. Palate: much sweeter than the nose. Creamy Sweet dough, dry wine , big fino and butterscotch. Dried fruits enter the party, but not heavy dried fruits. On the second wave a bit of zest is back. Finish: dried fruit. Dough , wood and cocoa.

Bottom line Interesting. Lovely mouth feel and thick without being too heavy on the sherry. Not ultra complex, but enjoyable and mouth coating, with a good strength and body at this high %ABV. A very nice, after dinner dram. Still available in some online stores (TWE for example at ~ £40). At that price you can get better drams, but considering it’s bottled at 54,6%,it’s a fairly good deal in my opinion.
