With the depth and complexity that comes from being matured for 16 years in a combination of first fill oak Bourbon casks and the finest Sherry butts, this expression's warm fruity notes are enriched by an engagingly spicy sweetness. Color: A warm, golden amber. Nose: Creamy with sweet raisin aromas and a spicy nuttiness. Palate: A smooth blend of floral and spicy flavours, paired with a sweet plum fruitiness and gentle oakiness. Finish: Gloriously long, with a warm, honeyed spiciness.

Wine EnthusiastThe bouquet is austere and leathery with curious aromas of beeswax, vegetable oil and oaky resin. Palate entry is focused on the resin; midpalate is splendidly multilayered and offers elements of black pepper, dried orange blossom, honeysuckle, dried fruit, sage, fennel and confections. Aftertaste is deep and unabashedly sweet and honeyed.
