Warm and spicy with hints of vanilla, chocolate and fruits.
Long with citrus, spices and some oak.
This was a really surprising dram. I had some high expectations about this before I tried it, but it just knocked me out of the park when I tried it. Loved the sherry notes together with the vanilla and chocolate notes. A perfect dram to just lay back and relax with.
