Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: loads of dark fruits, raisins, dates and figs with Manukah honey and chewy malt; there is a hint of earthy smoke and briny tones but the sherry is in charge.
Palate: more dark fruits, drier than expected due to the nose; leathery, earthy and tarry with licorice and rasins, dates and figs; a touch of tobacco, leather and bakers chocolate; the salty smoke and malt are slow to emerge; very savoury.
Finish: rich, long, coating and dark: spices, chocolate and smoke; fading elegant smoke with sea breeze; malt shows up last, and based on its persistence, it will last until morning.
Comment: the sherry is dominant but not so robust that it oversahdows the spirit.
