Nose: A sherry bomb that comes across as somewhat dry. Warm sand and warm leather - leather sandals in a desert. Figs and dates. Exotic Christmas vacation...
Taste: Rich and full-bodied. Very spicy upfront - lots of fruity chili and black pepper. Dry-ish on the palate as well. Bordering on too much oak influence, but it just about manages to land on the right side.
Finish: medium to long finish. The oakiness is still borderline. A touch astringent and bitter. Other than that there is caramel as well as dried and candied fruits.
Comments: A bit heavy on the oak, but other than that it is very fine.
