The cask is a first-fill sherry, distilled in 1999 and aged 18 years. The colour is exceptionally dark, owing to the cask used.
A wonderful whisky, a bottle of which came home with me from the distillery shop!
Enrapturing aroma, with a depth of stewed fruits and warm leather. Addition of couple of drops of water reveals hints of red berries and vanilla. Oozes charm.
Wonderful mouthfeel. Warm fruit pudding, chocolate, vanilla and honey and dancing together. Smooth as silk.
Very long, with an utterly pleasant backdrop of dried fruit.
