Nose: Now that's rich sherry. Honey, caramel stewed with syrupy dates, chocolate, wood, and red jammy strawberries. Vanilla, cake frosting, cinnamon, and other sweet brown baking spices emerge with time. Spice came and rum. Really delicious. Actually, I could even mistake this for a lighter, but not overly sweet, demerara rum.
Palate: Thick and pretty much everything that was on the nose. Bitter, grainy coffee, too, with everything else. A little more wood. Oily/syrupy. Ginger, pepper, baking spices, caramel, and more of that demerara rum with vanilla. Really enjoying this.
Finish: Really great length and it merges everything in a really superb combo. Sweet, delicious bitterness, spice, rum, and both sherry and bourbon barrels come out. Shows just how great grain and sherry can come together. I'm totally on board with this. A-
