The nose opens with some stinky, herbal and manuery peat. Given it hasn’t been finished for too many months, the sherry influence is quite subtle. Peppery with a touch of smoked meat, capsicum, brine, bacon and a little white fruit. Very pleasantly balanced.

The palate displays sweet barley and oxidised fruit to begin with. Manurey peat, herbal peat, green pepper and soft wood spices follow. The sherry influence is as subtle as the nose suggests but it does add a good sweetness which balances the herbal astringency. Honey coated BBQ meat on the middle. Long, salty, sweet dried fruit, barley husks, malt biscuits and toffee finish

Water doesn’t change the nose very much. It’s a little less stinky and there appears to be a little more grapey Palo Cortado character. On the palate it has brought out some almost tropical fruit notes, along with dried apricot and apple. Less peaty but still herbal and peppery. Finishes much like it did neat.
