Fino Sherry gold/straw color. Initial scent exhibits delicate notes of honey, oloroso Sherry and tobacco leaf; aeration stirs up succulent aromas including ashes, oaky vanillin, poppy seed and sweet malt. Palate entry is buttery, slightly herbal, lightly peated and oily; by midpalate, the oiliness takes control of the texture while the lightly peated tastes overshadows the honey, seeds and wood. Aftertaste is long, sweet and shows tobacco smoke. A tour de force from the legendary Highland Park.
