First fill sherry – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Raisins, toffee, Black Forest cake, butterscotch, hints of polished wood and cardamom.
Palate: Rum-soaked raisins, plum compote, sweet melons, caramel, hints of cinnamon and cardamom.
Finish: Long, fruity and slighly spicy.
Overall: The sherry influence is not very obvious here, it’s simply a very good fruity whisky with a nice unbostrusive sweetness.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze, medal, re-tasted for notes
