    Honey, leather, sherry. Nutty and funky wine notes. Toasted almonds, toffee and some nice tobacco.

    Medium mouthfeel, mild heat. Sweet sherry, toasted almonds and vanilla toffee. Faint pepper, with a nice fruity undertone.

    Medium length, nice and mild here on the heat, with lots of pepper, sweet nutty toffee and faint cocoa.

    Excellent, savory, rich and decadent bottling with plenty of complexity.
