Grand Castle 18 yo

by Oliver Klimek on January 9, 2013

Cask 3593 – 57.4%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark copper
Nose:  Rather intense, prunes, balsamic vinegar, chocolate, wood polish, hints of tobacco.
Palate: Prunes, amarena cherries, milk chocolate, hits of vinegar and cinnamoin.
Finish: Quite short, smooth and fruity.
Overall: A shy sherry monster, the powerful nose is followed by a fairly modest palate and finish. Very nice aromas but it is over too soon.

Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a silver medal, re-tasted for notes.
