    As is to be expected with a sherry barrel made of American oak, the sherry flavors are there, but NOT characterized by dried fruits such as raisins, plums or dates. However, it is still a very nice aroma profile, dominated by sweet vanilla notes. In addition, some malt, some roasted coffee, some lacquer.
    In the mouth a restrained, very pleasant spice with notes of tobacco.
    Long finish with oak, but without bitterness.
    A very nice barrel! You just have to take it for what it is: American Oak Sherry Butt!
    Anyone expecting a full Sherry Monster will be disappointed and should go for Cask # 6148, a very similar bottling, but made from European Oak ...
    Both bottlings in direct comparison show very clearly where the differences between the two oak varieties lie.
