General description

Very sherry dominant and fruitcakey but also features some bright and sweet flavours. With time it opens more flavours. Tons of fruit coming from the red wine barrels to complement the sherry and bourbon barrels.

Nose

Stewed rich fruit, possibly some strawberry compote, chocolate, sherry, fruit cake, raisins, lemon zest, toffee and a touch of toasty barrel.

Palate

Syrup sweetness, apples, malt, sea breeze, sherry, leather polish, cinnamon and gentle pepper spice.

Finish

Bitter oak and a little honey.

General description

Quick edit, (Sep, '21) - now that I'm on my 4th bottle. Its an absolute favourite, every night easy sipper.
Delicate, extremely nice aroma & palate, good sherry colour, light bodied, but nice & creamy - a hint of an oily glass. Unbelievably easy. Jam / marmalade ??? Sweetness from the barrels ??? Just as you swallow & wait, the bite kicks in 💥 - Another favourite @ 46%.
April, 2021 - 2nd Bottle. My score is up by 3. I enjoyed immensely on first taste, it finishes perfectly. Its up at the top of a growing collection. As I go through the 200 bottle point, its seriously good value ($80AUD)
3rd bottle, May 2021.
4th, September, 2021 ...... love it!

Color: Old gold

General description

not bad actually, but I don"t like the peaty facette here

Nose

not as young as the age on the bottel lable, fresh and metallic though, essential notes, grass, a hint of malt, dark chocolate, not much body yet, port wine, no peat, fruity

Palate

very few but notable peat note, dry port wine, vanilla, herbs, some honey, smooth overyall with some young freshness, later come hazelnuts, nougat chocolate, smooth and fruity, a bit mouldy on the tongue, with some water added much frutier and much more hazelnut taste

Finish

very smooth and sweet, warm, medium-long, dry peat, nougat and hazelnuts, there is a bit grass at the end, a lot of vanilla

Surprisingly tasty and round bodied for a NAS. Clear wood notes and red fruits for a rewarding dram, with balsamic notes and a warm finish.

General description

Subtle nose and equally subtle palate. The amazingly long flavourful finish makes it a very well balanced and pleasant dram
