Nose: full of dry sweet sherry, dark red overripe cherries, popcorn, Cola sweetness, slightly minty "schnapps / liqueur" Note by the alcohol, a batch of freshly beaten oak, gingerbread spices and almonds, only in the background then more and more clearly comes the smell a matchbox. Not disturbing but nicely integrated into the sweet sherry and giving the drop more depth. A typical sherry bomb that is very pleasant (not as wild and set as some others) and has a special kick due to the hint of sulfur. With some time in the glass, the sweetness comes out better again. Exactly my thing when it comes to sherry whiskys!
Taste: first smooth then the more than 50% noticeable with sparkling spice, again a lot of syrupy sweetness and also salty popcorn, sulfurized raisins, then to the rear a nut-nougat note is added and in the finish is joined again a light matchstick Note with this. Oak is slightly present with fresh wood and slight bitterness in the finish but not dominant due to the young age. The finish is warm, intense and medium long.
A thoroughly delicious whisky of intense sherry enjoyment delivers "dirtiness" with a little kick. A clear buy recommendation for all the characterful sherry bombs!
