Nose: The sherry influence is muted, leaving room for chalk, pickled lemons and green bananas, but also a slight minerality and just a little gunpowder. A few drops of flower honey, just the subtlest slivers of earthy smoke, and finally some hemp ropes.
Palate: Gentle at first, the arrival is surprisingly easygoing and very mature. Beautiful notes of menthol, smoke, chalk and lemon peel, but also burlap, leather and more honey. Nice salinity too, finished off with a hint of cherry syrup.
Finish: Lingering smoke, seaweed and mineral touches. A tinge of pepper too.
