Oloroso sherry cask 240 – 59.2%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark copper
Nose: Strawberry jam, cassis, waxed leather, hints of tobacco, cinnamon and polished oak.
Palate: Raisins, German-style “Rumtopf” fruits, treacle toffee, hints of milk chocolate, cinnamon and cardamom, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: This is an excellent example how a good sherry cask can make a very young whisky shine. It has lots of power and lots of flavour.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
