Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonUltra-massive sherry influence. Attractive, so dark, complex, slightly sweet-sourly. Cherries. No offnotes. Bigg. Dry bitter taste, on coffee, leather. Fernet in the aftertaste. Sweet-sourly. So massive, bitter and overpowering. A real treat.
Krishna NukalaHeavily sherried- spices like cloves and cinnamon.Nice wood in the rear. Looks like spirit that spent long age in a quality sherry cask. Lots of dry fruits. Coffee and dark chocolates. Sweet and honey like. Long sweetish everlasting finish. Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013
