Tasted: Feb 2011
The nose is very oily and a touch reserved. Perseverance in sniffing reveals a dense orange fruit character with a gentle sweetness imparted by the Oloroso cask, which is not overwhelming and adds a lovely touch of coffee-spice. It’s become exceedingly oily now as the mature honey begins to show. Very complex and rather understated to be honest. With time it becomes quite floral. The palate opens with a fair amount of oily barley and light honey. There’s a touch of under-ripe but fleshy citrus and the delicate, clean sherry moves in on the middle bringing with it some tannins and spice – again it is quite understated and the piquant citrus pierces it like an arrow! Very long with the barley returning and finishing with a perfumed touch, which almost verges on the soapiness.
