Overeem Sherry Matured, 43%

Price: $236 Issue: Summer 2014 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This second, standard-strength version of Casey Overeem's sherry pair bears toffee apple, cherry loaf, prune juice, and aged Aceto Balsamico Di Modena on the nose, adding a rewarding depth of flavor. It's rich, full-bodied, and clings to the teeth like a mollusk to a rock during a storm over the South East Cape. A late-night dram of cherry flesh, Brazil nut, ground cinnamon, whole clove, and cacao that dissipates into a relaxing finish of well-worn leather and wax cherry lips.£140
