Briny and toasty on the nose with suggestions of maple, cinnamon and fresh fig shining through. Decidedly semisweet with salted caramel, baked pear and campfire smoke coalescing into a classic, sherry-like finish. Fantastic.

Aged in Bourbon casks for 10 years, then "extra matured” for two years in Oloroso Sherry casks. The result is luxe and rich, a fine after-dinner sipper. Allow a little time for the aroma to emerge, and a splash of water for maximum flavor. The reward is a thick caramel aroma and flavor, with mouthwatering spicy notes of clove, cassia bark and a hint of orange peel.
