On the nose, sherry and caramel predominate. Doesn't seem so complex but it's nice. Not in a hurry to get past this to the drink.

On the tongue, caramel again and the oak comes through, not as sweet as the nose suggests but very smooth.

Finish doesn't linger long. There's a nice burn. Very approachable.

Interestingly the bottle is about 2/3 empty and has been open for a couple years, but I find I've been enjoying it more as it goes. Won't be so easily replaced anyway, so all the better.
