Spicy and luxurious.
The mature, deep, spicy one: a deeper Sherry influence adds more spiciness and a liquorice tang. Greater age adds body and develops the distinctive fruitiness to a rich raisin character.
Color: Sumptuous auburn gold.
Nose: Rich and complex, with notes of toffee and butterscotch combining with ripe peach and bitter orange.
Palate: Superbly structured, with initial notes of soft apricot and cream, offset by developing flavours of old leather and oak, with a touch of honey.
Finish: Very long and well balanced, progressing from crème brulée to a gentle oak flourish.
