Member Ratings and Notes
The nose has sherry and a very light sulfur note along with some coastal breeze. On the palate there is sweet sherry and a small dose of sulfur which grows into the finish; after a few seconds the finish turns metallic, though not in a bad way, and then a bit salty. I like how this one transitions from quite sweet to more funky.

n:  Caramel


p: Hot funk.  Red hot spiced dried apricots.  Lots of dried fruits really but leaning toward raisin and apricot.  Vibrant although the finish loses steam.



Amber. Base sherry on the nose. A little musty with dried raisins. Fairly standard sherry nose. Rough and astringent on the tongue. Dries out my mouth. Not nearly as much sherry as I was expecting. B-/B [3/3/15]

n: weird nose, old tin that held sardines, then sea salt caramel. yellow sulfur ghosting in there. Old leather work gloves.


t: musty oaky and chile spice dried mango. vegetal decay taste in the middle. finish is more towards sweetside with apricots. This is all over the place. [C+/B-]
