Dark Sherry Cask – 54.5%
My Tasting Notes:
Color: Dark mahogany
Nose: Very intense, ripe berries, dried fruits, tea
Palate: Quite dry, berries and tea again, nutmeg, allspice
Finish: Rather long, fruity and dry
Overall: This whisky has a “million dollar nose” suggesting a very rich sherry bomb. But the palate does not quite meet the expectations raised by the nose as it lacks complexity. Given the extremly dark color after only eleven years, I can’t help thinking that this cask was bottled in a rush to save before the sherry killed all the whisky-ness. Interesting nevertheless.
Score: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
