Colour: brown sugar.
Nose: Sweet-spicy, but not particularly intense, restrained, opening better as soon as poured into the glass. Apple strudel, raisins, dried apricots, dried plums, prune sourness, pear, rotten banana, orange peel, butter, sour milk, almonds, pistachios, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger.
Taste: generally pleasant, but flat with minimal development, as sweet and spicy as the aroma, with inclusions of creamy and creamy nuances. Dried apricots, dried pear and plum raisins, vanilla, cream, milk chocolate, burnt caramel, herbaceous mint tones, hazelnut husks, citrus peel, ginger.
Finish: short to medium, ginger, citrus zest, dried apricots.
Summary: Too restrained, without the variety and richness inherent in the wonderful fortified wines Oloroso and Pedro Jimenez, the taste and aroma of this whisky do not allow it to be called an outstanding, "sherry monster". The culprit is most likely the reduction to 43%, cold filtration and perhaps not too prominent barrels compared to the previous version, as experts and lovers assure us, but overall the whisky is pleasant and well deserves its ratings.
