Producer's tasting notes: "Rich sticky toffee, dark chocolate, hazelnuts and a touch of honey. Sweet, dripping in aromas of dates, Christmas cake, spices and all the classic sherry cask flavours we love. It is an abundantly generous dram, viscous and thick when tasted with a long, smooth and spiced finish."
Nose: Really pronounced and rich sweetness leaps out the glass. All the classic aromas of a sherry monster dram! Raisins, dark chocolate and sticky toffee pudding. A touch of vanilla and a hint of leather.
Palate: Bold and unctuous. Cask strength and residual sugars make for a mouth-coating dram. Buttery honey, sticky toffee join waves of Christmas cake, sticky toffee pudding and melted vanilla ice cream.
Finish: Long, mellow and super smooth. The fudgey sweetness lasts so long mingling with mild spicing.
Natural colour. Non chill filtered.
