First Fil Dark Sherry – 49.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Color: Dark brown
Nose: Slightly smoky and maritime, cherries, cocoa
Palate: Cherries, dark chocolate, a hint of tea, minimal peat, quite dry
Finish: Long, fruity smoke, a surprising herbal touch right at the end.
Overall: Very complex and concentrated, the lightly peated sherry fruitiness reminds me a bit of Bowmore. Wood tannins are surely there after 35 years, but not overwhelmingly strong.
Score: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
