Nose: Toffee sweetness and Werther’s Originals spring out of the gate like an eager filly at Churchill Downs. The PX finishing is extremely apparent with brown sugar and Christmastime notes. There is a hint of salted caramel and just a whisper of granny’s old baking-and-spice cabinet.
Palate: Rich, dark, and dried fruits roll down like an avalanche and lead into a river of caramel and toffee. Some soft potpourri and candied lemon peel pops up its head but doesn’t overpower. Though it begins as an elegant racehorse, it shows its power like the mighty draught horse it is.
Finish: This filly does not disappoint! Long and lingering, it carries the salted caramel through to the back of the throat for a pleasantly dry and lip-smacking finish.
Overall: If you love sherry and adore PX, you will love this dram. An easy drinker with energy and long lasting richness, it certainly demonstrates its value. More, please…
