Perfectly balanced, and very interesting. How is this so good at 12 years old? Like settling into a perfectly made, very large, very comfortable bed at the end of a very stressful day. It’s hard to put a price on that feeling.
Nose: Big sherry. Perfect sherry bomb on the nose. Herbal and lightly sulphured, almost mineral, with matches and granite. A bit speechless.
Body, Balance & Feel: Quite mind blowing. A soft blow to the frontal cortex, very softly spiced and extremely rude. Unspeakably good.
Finish: Very long and spiced, oaked with orange chocolate and almost sour.
What’s good about it?
Immense fruit, sherry and balance on the nose, incredibly compelling on the delivery. Amazing stuff.
