    N: A fruity number that isn’t too blatantly oloroso-ed nor overly doctored! It’s also rather malty with a little peat oil.
    T: Oily sherry malt with a few choice berries, blackberry Tunes and tarry rope. There’s a hint of old skool about this for sure.
    F: Bitter-sweet and somewhat malty with a fairly short cut off.
    C: Rock on! £75 for a 50cl bottle on the day.

    A great filling for the Feils Ile 2018. The sherry cask maturation does not seem to be set or forced. With the spices in the nose and on the tongue you can enjoy this whisky for a long time.
    • Nose
      91 91
      (Rum) raisins, marzipan, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, coriander - you could call that almost Christstollen. Wonderfully dense and fat nose. Dried apricots, dates, figs. Mild herbs and in addition to cinnamon & coriander other spices such as pepper, chervil, bay leaves, cloves. It does not stop anymore and is getting more and more intense.

      On the tongue, the Oloroso keg immediately becomes noticeable and lets a good portion of ripe grapes and sherry aroma slosh on the tongue. Add some oak, a hint of smoke, damp forest soil, mushroom taste. As in the nose, so on the tongue: spice cupboard on and just enjoy. Crème Brulée, Espresso Beans, Werther's Real and Fudge.
    • Finish

      Medium long, only slightly dry, oak, a little bit of smoke, sherry sweet.
