Day 13 gave me the 2000 Premium Edition (bottled in 2015) and this is 46% vol. this was aged in Oloroso casks and this too was produced for European markets.
The nose has well, the tell tale sherry notes. But not the huge grab you by the cheeks and give you a big kiss sort… more of an air kiss to be fair. There’s a really tangy hint of orange. And an acetone note, with some vanilla interspersed within it.
The palate gives more than the nose suggests with spice and heat from the off. Vanilla and bitter chocolate notes. Feels quite thin on the palate with some flavours of oak.
Warming on the finish with a slight waxiness.
