A nice, gentle wood presence emerges in a way that evokes the same allspice that was noticeable in the nose. There's also a floral presence here like jasmine. The sherry presence in my glass is mercurial, to be sure. Fruit flavors emerge, yielding mandarin orange, Hachiya persimmon, marzipan and sour pie cherries.
Farmy, smokey charms are never far behind. There's also a charming essence of minerality. A coating note of dark chocolate with the impatient bite of virgin oak. Woody resins, together a splash of young spirit, create the sensation left in one's mouth from chewing tobacco, long after the “dip” is gone.
