What I say:

Sampled during the Milroy’s of Soho Tweet Tasting 2

Nose:

Sherry cask, suede leather, raisin, plum, nutmeg, delicious – suspect Oloroso sherry butt finish

Taste:

Sweet raisins, Xmas cake, slight sour/bitter coffee/choco taste at end. Like Highland malt in Oloroso? smoother with water and more deep sherry fruits burst out .

Finish:

Medium-long, sherry fruits, cocoa and tannic leather persist

Overall:

We really enjoyed this one, not quite as much as the Dutch Rye
