Deep brown to mahogany to amber at the rim with cooper highlights.
Full and quite intense with strong Oloroso notes and perhaps a little PX. You can smell the texture imparted by old Sherry barrels along with hints of vanilla, walnut and toasted almonds. It is rich and generous with hints of antique furniture, brown sugar, caramel and oak, but all in harmony.
Again full bodied, rich, and fairly powerful, with all the above and mellowed only slightly by gentle sweet notes of caramel, cinder toffee, dried fig and date. It really speaks of the quality of the butts it has been aged in; you can almost chew the oak, yet it is not particularly tannic and leaves a concentrated Sherried intensity which lasts for ages. Impressive stuff.
