Nose: Starts quite salty with salted brazil nuts, and a certain saline-y note, but nicely balanced with caramel and some dried fruit notes (though not very sweet), some toasted oak, and orange peel too.
Palate: Full body, with initial sweet caramel and fudge, on top of oranges. the palate certainly feels sweeter than the nose, and less salty, although you can detect hints of salt, mainly in the finish. It’s not hugely vinous but you can certainly feel the wine-y tannins and notes out there. The Manzanilla is there, no doubt
Finish: The long aftertaste is rich, mellow and soothing, with flavours of toffee, caramel, chocolate and dates.
