    Full-frontal sherry, but the nose betrays its age. This actually feels younger than the last batches. It's also way more vulgar and way less "integrated" than, say, Aberlour's A'bunadh. I would rather get that instead, or the Glengoyne CS, or two bottles of the 10- or 12-year-old Tamdhu at 43%.

      Hugely yeasty and just outright smothered with sherry. A thick almondy sweetness. Christmas spices, umami, autumn leaves: you get the idea. It's nice enough, like the ten or twelve-year-olds on steroids. But then comes...

      Without water; punchy, aggressive, just outright burning-the-top-of-your-tongue-hot. A no-go.

      With water: sweet sherry and sweet spirit combine into one teeth-coatingly saccharine affair. It's intense, it's nutty, it's leathery, and it's all happening right up front, without any hidden layers or depth. Good if you want a real young ex-sherry blast, or if you need something strong to still reach your numbed-down taste buds after a flight of other whiskies. But on its own, I can't imagine when I might want this.

      Echoes of sweet, syrupy, nutty-earthy modern seasoning sherry, some fading heat.

    Simple but very nice whisky, looks older to me than many other NAS Cask Strength whiskys.
    • Nose
      Caramel and sweet sherry in the form of figs and dates make a start. Add to that a herbal note, hazelnut and some grapefruit. The alcohol has a cooling effect and you have an association with menthol.
    • Taste
      On the tongue caramel and hazelnuts start, then quickly takes over the kräutrige oak, and brings a little bitterness, the grapefruit comes through again.
    • Finish
      Medium long, becomes more and more bitter, dark chocolate and the memory of the grapefruit.
