    What a stunner! Pure, natural sherry character. A dark, sherried and
    beautifully composed whisky with a well mastered alcohol. Impressively
    rich and indulgent, this
    single malt shows a nice complexity with a perfect balance. The
    flavours have melded in a beautiful way, in what must have been an
    excellent first-fill sherry cask. A great choice, especially
    as an after-dinner or late-night whisky.

    • Nose
      Rich and intense on the nose. Concentrated sherry notes nicely mixed
      with dried fruits, plums, dates and rum-soaked raisins, followed by a
      touch of nuttiness and sweet
      Demerara sugar. Slightly dry notes of cocoa and dark bitter
      chocolate arrive, with gentle polished antique furniture and a hint of
      tobacco leaves in the back. Lovely complex.
    • Taste
      Deliciously sweet and intense on the palate. Rich sherry notes come
      along with dates, figs, plums and juicy oranges. This is accompanied by a
      bold and warming
      spiciness of pepper, cinnamon and oak. Sweet notes of Demerara
      sugar are quickly replaced by sligthly bitter notes of orange peel,
      tobacco leaves and dark chocolate towards the finish,
      resulting in a pleasant mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and sweet with a nice creamy texture. Oranges with a
      warming spiciness of cinnamon and oak, followed by dry notes of tobacco
      leaves and lingering
      tannins in the end.
      With water: Still sweet on the nose with full
      sherry flavours when a splash of water is added. Slightly more dry notes
      of oak, tobacco leaves and burnt matches. Sweet and
      creamy on the palate with lingering notes of sherry, dates and
      raisins. Dark chocolate and prickling oak spice on the tongue. The
      finish is long, creamy and warm with far more oranges, mixed
      with some more dry notes of oak, tannins and tobacco leaves on
      the tail.
