£56.69

First & Second Fill Bourbon, Virgin oak, Pedro Ximinez & Oloroso casks
Tasted Nov 2019
So, I was expecting it to be the same as batch 2, but the dark colour indicated that it wasn’t going to be the same and it wasn’t! Aromas of dense, raisinated sherry fruit and hints of dark chocolate, sweet prune, walnut, date, toasty oak and subtle herbal spices.

The palate is unsurprisingly dense and raisinated with treacle, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, earth and more raw, unpolished sherried fruit. Intense herbal spice finish with malt biscuits, sweet camphor, liquorice, treacle, cigar leaf, heather and slightly bitter spice notes. It’s definitely raw sherry!

Water makes the nose a little softer but it’s very much the same as it is neat. On the palate it has brought out a touch more burnt, biscuity spice and subtle industrial spirit notes. Longer, but damn those bitter spice notes linger. Soft and fluffy it isn’t!
