Bottled December 09, so rating set to current average.

Aroma is rich with toffee sweetness initially, becoming fairly sherry dominant and almost vinous late.

Flavor reveals a combination of both vinous sherry and slightly sweet, deeply caramelized malts. The finish is nutty. The vinous notes add nuances of dark cherry, which are pleasant, but definitely overpower. Not meant to age 6 years.
