After 20 years, still at 61.2%...???? Generously shared by a regular of The Whisky Bar.
N- Nose melting strength a prelude to something great are coming. Softened down to bed of spices, floral, new wool, honey bee and rusted chains. Mineral and coastal with harboring saline. Malt sweetened citrus and oat. Highly evolving, some burn coal and small campfire. (90/22)
P- Lovely sweet oak jus at spine, foster with liquorice syrup, fresh pine, nutmeg and compote of citrus jam. Various notes at loud and clear high pitch. (90/22)
F- Long, ripe citrus tart, profound strength that caress the senses. Honey, beewax, coffee and pounded peppercorn. Succulent and dangerously heady. (92/23)
B/B- 93/23 It says is a Sherry Hogshead. Thought not much of sherry to cherish, instead more bourbon cask forward. Probably an old vintage Sherry cask that has previously used on finishing or had done a lengthy 2nd maturation for some great bourbon cask matured whiskies with it, that has 'washed down' most of the sherry notes. But no complaints, it nurtured this Inch-y superbly.
