In the mouth; less complexity, 'cleaner', but still a sherry monster. How soft it is surprises me for 59%. Orange, raisin, grapefruit, citrus zest, cinnamon, dark chocolate, salted caramel, espresso, tobacco, leather and some grain in the background. A bit brackish even.
Finish is quite a surprise. A load of butterscotch and some tiramisu!
A very good pick by the Whiskybase guys. Lots of cask influence, maybe a bit too much, but when it's good, it's good. The Bruichladdich spirit can handle it well. Still not so sure if I'd hunt down a bottle but I wish I had a wee bit more to sample..
Based on a sample.
