The nose shows a gentler more reserved style of Amontillado, quite rounded and sweetish. Caramel coated hazelnuts with dried apricot and candied orange, a touch of praline and vanilla. Savoury notes of pipe tobacco leaves and light traces of its Fino past, with a faint yeasty note, but quite an oxidative style overall. The palate is dry, and with lots more character than the nose lets on. Plenty of acidity with a some Fino saltiness and green olives. Walnuts, not much oak, with a small nuance of fruity, juicy notes leading to herbal and slightly bitter notes, but always balanced by a suggestion of sweet roundness. Long, dry finish.
