The nose opens with a beautiful combination of crunchy honeycomb and leafy Oloroso. There is no shortage of coffee wood notes which are very well balanced by the crisp, slightly coastal-like distillery character. Pleasantly mature with some succulent, oily, citrus fruit and chocolate coated orange along with a light, almost peaty note.
The palate is soft and relatively oily, opening with some saline infused citrus and followed by the juicy Oloroso adding hints of toffee, coffee and creamy milk chocolate. There is a touch of dried fruit on the middle and the finish is very intense and citrusy, which mingles rather pleasantly with the bitter chocolate and wood tannins. That citrus note keeps it clean, fresh and balanced. Finally finishing with a lovely mocha aftertaste. Very entertaining and very good!
