First-fill European Oak Oloroso Sherry Casks
Fruity and sweet on the nose with ripe yellow pears and juicy sultanas, followed by sherry, creamy toffee and vanilla custard. Then a delicate spiciness arrives with cinnamon and subtle oak, accompanied with dark chocolate in the back.
Bold and thick on the palate with sweet notes of oranges, vanilla and toffee. Oaky spice is coming through along with cinnamon, ginger and a whiff of white pepper, followed by dark chocolate. The sherry casks add some nice nutty flavours, too.
Good length. Creamy, sweet with dried fruits and sticky toffee, followed by oak spice and fine nutty flavours on the tail.
Fruity and fresh on the nose with a few drops of water, with additional oak spice. Quite spicy on the palate with pepper, prickling oak, cinnamon and ginger, complemented with dried fruits, vanilla and creamy toffee. The finish shows good length with dark chocolate, hazelnuts and dried fruits.
