The heady aromas of currants and raisins soaked in sweet sherry joined black cherry clafoutis desserts with butterscotch sweets and ginger. Cherries continued on the palate but now with nuts, charred wood and coriander seeds coated in treacle and citrus zest. Adding water uncovered sultanas, orange segments and baked peaches with fresh almonds, marzipan and creme catalan while salty sea air blew through an open sherry bodega. Within the bodega, complex Oloroso flavours of walnuts and porcini mushrooms blended with heavy and oily malt spirit before a dash of lime juice splashed onto oak spices and dry tannins. After spending 9 years in an ex-Oloroso butt this was transferred to an ex-bodega 1st-fill Oloroso butt for the remainder of its maturation.
