1ST FILL SPANISH BOTA CORTA SHERRY CASK
Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

n: Luxardo cherries and plums

 

p:  Thick oily mouthfeel. Plum and blackberry pie on a spanish cedar crust.  A little sweet but not so much so that it gets cloying.  Reminds me of a GlenDronach when they hit a home run.

 

A-/A 

Fuji
 

Tasted Blind B/B+

 

N: Heavy dense sherry. Wet tobacco, gasoline, and smoke mixed in with red fruit stew.


P: Big sherry fruit with eucalyptus and menthol. Bitter sweet palate that tastes and feels cask strength. Charred mushroom, red apple skin, burnt brussels sprouts, lime peels. The sweetness is just too much here. Reminds me of Kavalan soloist sherry. Good but just over the top sherry that makes it really hard to enjoy because its sickly sweet and not cohesive.
