The line up of 12, 15, 18 follows an even progression.
With a progression in price as well.
The 18 has the most flavour, yet the 15 was my fav, and still I think the 12 is best value for money.
This has spent it's extra years in some good sherry wood.
The sherry influence is much deeper than on the 15.
Still not completely covering the lighter fruity notes of the bourbon casks, but this has added notes of raisins, prunes, more and darker chocolate, coffee and leather.
Very rich on the darker notes without going to any extremes.
Well rounded and on the sweet side, although it feels a bit more dry than it's younger siblings.
We are approaching a long finish.
Chocolate and coffee, slightly drying.
