Refill sherry butt – 51.3%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Raisins, orange zest, strawberries, toffee, waxed wood and nutmeg.
Palate: Raisins, dried apricots, banana, orange marmalade, honey, nutmeg, hints of cinnamon.
Finish: Long and fruity.
Overall: A nice fruity dram that feels a bit younger than its real age, some water does not hurt it.
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2011 – Re-tasted for notes
Note: Re-tasting this dram I am tempted to notch up the score by one or two points, but the official blind score will stay as it is.
