Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

Nose: Toffee at first, then blackcurrant and lovely floral notes.  Apricot, peach, exotic fruit. Strawberry?! Honey, vanilla, coffee.  Toasty oak.

Palate: Smooth malt, blackberry.  Very fruity.  Strong pepper and spice, christmas cake and vanilla sweetness.  Some great developing smokiness alongside powerful malt flavours.  Clearly from an excellent sherry cask. With water, the fruit is more evident and floral notes come through.

Finish:  Long and powerful, fruit gradually fading with the smoke, malt and toasty oak lingering longest. 

Comment:  A lot going on for one so young.  Complexity and raw power.
