Tasting Notes


Nose: Sweet Sherry notes, with a defined sweet cured bacon note emerging. Some subtle touches of stewed pears and a burst of ash lingers.

Palate: Mouth warming with a burst of chilli spices. Delicate Sherry sweetness, with a hint of vanilla developing. Peat smoke and bonefire embers evolve.
