The nose on this is dark chocolate and port. The palate is rich, lots of port flavors, syrup, cream sherry, nice ballance here and a lot of complexity. The finish lingers for a long time, the richness coats the entire mouth. This tastes almost like a big vintage port. A lot of complexity here, I would say that this expression would make for a great dessert malt.

The nose on this is quite sweet with lots of fruit and sherry. The palate has a nice well rounded taste of nuts, cinnamon with more fruit and sherry. The finish is light and smooth with some lingering syrup. I like this expression and wouldnt hesitate to try it again when I want a reasonably priced sherry expression.
