Excerpt: The nose and palate are nice, but there is a persistent milky sweetness in there that throws it a bit off for me. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely like it, but for me it just doesn’t hold a candle to last year’s release.

As a self professed sherry obsessor this expression really interested me, as it’s finished in a rarely seen type of sherry: Amontillado.
Smoke and char, vanilla, caramel, honey and thin grape with some light light sherry notes.
Light and mild, some astringent rubber and plastic notes with a little bit of heat. Sweet, burning rubber, lots of peat and a very evident bit of charred log. Overall, more peaty than sweet which was unexpected but not disappointing.
Rubber, char and more burning telephone pole. Only mild sherry, it's fleeting and lightly sweet with a heavy focus on big peat. Overall, I enjoyed this a lot but there was less sherry than I expected but that's not really a disappointment.
Enticing and delicious, but not near the top of the Cairdeas rankings, if I'm honest.
