Nose

The sherry influence is immediately discernable on the nose, which seems to be sweet and fruity. Apple and dried apricots. Dried flowers, as well. Some mint and toffee. Truckload of honey. Dusty, too. Nice.

Taste

The dried apricots and honey return on the wonderfully creamy palate. Very spicy. Liquid gingerbread. Turns slightly bitter towards the end. Delicious in all its simplicity.

Finish

The finish is slightly drying and very long. Heartwarming.

Comments

Complex? No. So what? It is a great whisky. Very nice cask selection indeed.
