Nose: Starts Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Then some serious coffee notes and dark chocolate come in. I have one word for you : PRUNES! , fruit compot with lots of prunes giving it that dark, sweet deep aroma. It reminds me of my Grandmother's fruit ‘Kompot’ (a desserts made from boiling all sorts of dried fruit : Prunes,Sultanas, raisins with lots of sugar and spice, then served cold. I once had the pleasure of eating this dish in one of Israel’s top restaurants with some Champagne Sorbet on top. yumm.) but let’s get back to the nose , shall we? So we have Prune Kompot, Spice, Cinnamon. the works. Shabbat desert at the Jewish Shteitl.

Palate: Prunes attack here as well. The chocolate follows , then enters the sultanas, spices and burnt sugary finish. mouth coating, thick, viscous, powerful stuff. Yumm. This is a sherry done right. period.

Finish: Long finish, starting on dark chocolate, ending on prunes (sweet) and some Espresso notes (bitter). Bitter-sweet symphony.
