Color
Deep copper
Nose

Caramel, red wine gum, apricot, pineapple, banana and a little pastry. Later a bit floral. Water adds citrus and waxiness, but removes the typical sherry notes.

Taste

Toffee, red wine gum, beeswax, peat, peach and cranberry. More waxy with water, as well as some coconut.

Finish

Chocolate, toffee, honey, cherry, peach, mocha and rhubarb.

Color

Nose

Intense, green and yellow fruits, also some tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, some oaky notes too

Taste

Very oily and creamy, honey, vanilla, tropical fruits, good sweetness - really not bad

Finish

Long, warm, more punchy

Comments

Needs some air to lose the fresh sherry taste which is going a bit into leather and sweat - after it is very drinkable and enjoyable

Nose

Lovely stuff! The sherry influence is subtle and very well-integrated. Plum juice, raspberries and sweet oranges. It has a lovely minerality to it, as well as a slight sootiness, a whisper of polished leather and soft notes of cigar tobacco. Finally some brown sugar, icing and after a little while even a hint of soy. Top notch...

Taste

Oh yes! Is this really almost 60 percent? Lovely, juicy fruits. Apricot jam, strawberries, and oranges. Somewhat waxy, a touch of brine and gentle notes of peat. Also some furniture polish, as well as menthol and a touch of licorice. Very classy.

Finish

Basically all of the above, with the fruits lingering. Medium in length.

Comments

Geez, this is better than I could've hoped for. Whatever these guys bottle, I think it is now safe to say I can buy it blind. Even if it is Loch Dhu.
