Tasting Notes

Nose
G&M:  A soft, classic sherry nose. It abounds with damsons, Turkish raisins, and a dry, almond nuttiness.
Taste
G&M:  In the mouth, there’s bountiful dark chocolate, and espresso beneath ripe plums, apricot kernels and intense orange oils.  Watchful dilution emphasises the almond and marzipan notes, developing the nose into a slightly sweeter proposition. Simultaneously, it punctures that perceptible alcohol strength on the neat dram.
