The palate opens with deep butterscotch and smoky oak, followed by fruity sherry notes, dried fruit, dark chocolate, earthy rye, and dark stone fruit.
The nose is subtle and complex, with deep brown sugar, earthy nuts, black stone fruits like cherries and plums, dry, sweet, and floral sherry with a dash of smoky oak.
The finish opens warm with a kick of sherry notes before dark chocolate, earthy spice, and
dark fruit emerge, leaving an aftertaste of charred oak, dry sherry, and anise.
