Nose: Malty sherry notes and some dry oak with hints of red currant.
Taste: Powerful and full-bodied. The malt marries nicely with the herbal notes from the sherry with hints of dark chocolate. With water it mellows a bit and ripe plums turns up.
Finish: A spicy finish with a wee touch of a mentholic haze that goes in to a sweeter end with some tannins.
