    When reading back my notes I couldn't believe I wrote that down for an ex Oloroso hogshead. Anyhow, it was good so just take my impressions with a grain of salt.

  9. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    This begins with a beautifully delicate floral aspect. Notes of hawthorn, meadow flowers, pine resin, elderflower champagne, apple pie and earth all converge. Then it’s soot, green fruits, lemon balm, gooseberry compote, rancio and fresh brown bread. A total delight! With water there is a champagne like effervescence along with wax, furniture polish, aged pinot noir, herbal liqueurs, dried mango and an old ink pot. On the palate it opens with a saline oloroso note mingling with fruit scones, spun sugar, treacle sponge, salted peanuts, hazelnut spread, Dundee cake and lemon jelly. A little water evolves things towards orange bitters, molten toffee crisp, a meaty earthiness and finally notes of red fruit teas, orange marmalade, cola cubes and strawberry wine. Transferred at 30 years of age into a first fill oloroso hogshead.
