Nice creamy nose with honey and dried fruits from the sherry wood, also notes of sponge cake, apricot and orange marmalade. Light, sweet palate with a fresh fruitiness (orange) and a note of custard. Clean and fresh but slightly thin. Drying and develops oak. Nice spicy, oaky finish. All in all nicely balanced and more-ish.

Score: 85 p
