The nose is quite rich and full with a well-balanced sweetness. There are notes of musty attic with golden syrup and caramelised dark brown sugar. Hints of wood resins and sap, a touch of oily walnut with a good fruitiness. There are some chewy sherried sultanas for mastication. The palate is of good body and quite rich. There are some good sweet barley notes with cut hay and a greenness. Cut herbs emerge with notes of toasted oaken spice and a good peppery notes. The finish is long and quite spicy with a whirling smoke and fino sherry note.
