The nose is quite rich with a fruity character. There is a tartness with a citric acidity with racy zestiness. There are notes of walnut and fragrant wood oils, hints of various conserves and dried fruits with chewy sultanas. The palate is of medium-body with a silken delivery. The sherry seeps into the dried fruits and the gentle smoke rises gracefully. A barley sweetness emerges. The finish is of good length with a hint of fruity warmth.
