Sons of Liberty Battle Cry Oloroso Sherry Finish (Batch 2), 46%
Price: $40 ● Issue: Fall 2016 ● Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth
Deep golden in color with a pinkish cast, this shows good purity of fruit, with red berry, black cherry, toasty oak, and some oxidative nutty notes layered across a creamy, malty palate. A nice grilled-fruit palate echoes with sweetness and charcoal smoke on the long finish. The sherry contributes a lot of nice character, but without more overall maturity feels a bit like window dressing.
