Tasting Notes


A strong nose. Prominent oloroso sherry on the edge of the glass, bitter cocoa beans, chocolate macaroons.

Big flavours, sweet iced tea, giving way to spiciness of cinnamon and almond powder, and then to wave after wave of fantastic sherry and port sensations.

Heavy finish, triple choclate cheesecake, not a very long finish but you certainly get all the flavours crammed in there. Everything you want in one big hit.
