This is a char-broiled Mencía that's a lot more about oak and barrel influence than anything else. Aromas run from blackened meat to barbecue, with a saucy berry note. It feels round, full and resiny from the copious oak aging, with dominating flavors of wood, char and toast, along with related notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
