Description

In order to share this bottling with as many members as possible, purchases are limited to 2 bottles per member. Any additional or duplicate orders which exceed this limit will be cancelled and refunded.

A sumptuous nose! Alive with brandy butter, botrytis and sultana compote. A banana sprinkled with brown sugar and gleefully blowtorched followed by suggestions of trail mix, malt loaf and touches of mint tea. Some lozenges and eucalyptus oil in the background as well. Water brings earth after rainfall, bracken and still-warm coal hearths. The arrival on the palate is dense and chocolatey with notes of various cured meats, wet earth, sorrel, dried herbs, turmeric and pears baked in cognac. There is a beautiful and curiously old-school aspect to the sherry. Water lifts the dark fruits and brings out wintry, orange peel and mulling spice notes.
