Ed's tasting notes
Nose: Red fruits, russet apples, and soft berries. An older, dusty sherry note, together with vanilla. Wood spice and oak.
Palate: Full mouthfeel, with a velvet nature that coats the mouth. More red fruits and russet apples. An oak characteristic, and perhaps some earthiness from the sherry. Warming, with pepper and red chilli flakes.
Finish: A medium to long finish with red fruit and spice.
