Sherry butt 2511 – 58.2%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Raisins, apples, burnt sugar, fresh hay, toasted almonds and nutmeg.
Palate: Apple strudel with almonds and whipped cream, dried apricot, hints of coffee and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Some very nice flavours can be found in this malt, but despite being cask strength, there is a somewhat watery undercurrent.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
