Wet pine bough, tobacco leaf, tea, light rancio, and dark fruit aromas on the nose, as the sherry cask lets you know it's in the game. More pronounced sherry notes on the palate—chocolate brownies, tiramisu, and a hint of candle wax. Water unlocks chocolate, baking spice, and cinnamon bread. Smooth and creamy on a finish that adds drizzled caramel and honeyed almonds. Balanced sweetness and very smooth sipping—a treat for sherried scotch fans.
