Nose:
Sherry, strong fruit, caramel, alcohol, maltiness, sweet
Taste:
Oak, bitter, dryer
Finish:
Long
Nosing:
Not obvious to begin with. Planed wood, light toffee, boat varnish. Linseed oil behind, even putty, and later a lychee-like acidity. With water the acidity comes through (acid drops), and the nose sweetens. Still a pleasant fresh woodiness, followed by warm sand. After a while, coffee with brown sugar.
Taste:
Pleasant; an initial sweetness is quickly overtaken by acidity.
Finish:
Dry; medium-length, with an attractive lingering sandalwood aftertaste.
