Andrew's Tasting Note - Batch 06/02/20
Nose: dark, rich and nutty; dried dark fruits, treacle sauce and juicy tobacco; Christmas cake, Eatmore and Russian caramel; dark chocolate with cayenne pepper and Demerara sugar.
Palate: big, rich and sherried; Christmas cake, candied and dried dark fruits with more tobacco; dark chocolate infused with cayenne peppers, leather and more juicy tobacco; thick, oily and spicy moving in to candied fennel, licorice and a touch of clove.
Finish: big, rich, long and coating with tingling sugars and spice; the sherry is bold by neither over cooked or over the top; a touch of heat but no rough edges; softer and more delicate fruits emerge with patience… citrus and melons.
Comment: this is one of the most heavily sherried Arrans I’ve ever had, and at just over 80 bucks, it is a steal; big, rich, oily and full of those classic sherry notes you remember from the good old days.”
