Nose: Nice soothing gentle sherry with oaky wood , wood is subtle and not overpowering, raisins along with sherry, caramel sweetness


Palate: Some alcohol pepperish with glowing sweetness, here the woodyness seems stronger, giving a bit of astringent feeling with lingering sherry , however doesn't feel complex


Finish: Short-medium, some lingering sherry / wood, some warmness at the back of the throat and mild bitterness


Score : 86, WB112470


Thank you @darrenhja for the dram
