Sweet, pronounced and vividly aromatic. Sherry nose. Just quite amazing!
Wow I am digging on the woodsy-tree barky aroma on this one, reminded me of hiking in the mountains on a misty fall afternoon. Really impressed with this one, I am finally catching the sherry notes on this, so nice and fruity but not sweet really, coupled with a slightly savory finish
Sherry. Sherry baaaby, won't you come home with me. Nutt-ay and sweet. Salty sherry flavor.
Deeeep. Cola and syrup. Wow. As close to pure sherry as possible, I can't tell if I love it or I'll tire of it quickly, but definitely an experience. Much easier to drink than the ABV would lead me to believe.
Subtle notes that dictate a harmonious journey throughout. A dessert.
Remarkable first impression. The alcohol and the flavor of the spirit completely separate on the tongue - alcohol stays on the front tip while the flavor all migrates immediately to the back of the mouth. Strong smell of cherries or marishino syrup - almost like an old fashioned. Add water and nose changes to be more of a dark caramel. Flavor is okay but leaves an awkward sulfur residual sense on the tongue.
