    The nose is reminiscent of fully ripe fruits that are covered with light chocolate ... the fruit is more dominant. The alcohol is of course there but with 55.3% vol. not stinging ... ???? is thus a candidate that you enjoy sometimes only with the nose! With a little time, the fruit can be defined as raspberry.
    The first sip ... a light tingle and dark chocolate, already over 75% cocoa. Then follows a bitter sweetness that I know from the espresso - not unpleasant and the bitterness does not last long ... now I have the fruit again! The next sip lacks the tingling and the dark fruit-chocolate is immediately there ... the finish is very nice and warm and long lasting. When smacking I have again tart notes but are very pleasant.
    So, the whisky keeps what the age promises - 24 years in the Sherry Butt leave a wonderful impression!
    Short Description - OLD SCHOOL SHERRY Whisky!

    Nose: tart fruit streams from the glass, ripe red apples, wild berries, raspberries, sweet espresso, freshly ground pepper, anise and always in the background: apricots. Nothing is intrusive or comes to the fore. The flavors get a stage one after the other. The alcohol is quite present in the nose, but just in a pleasant setting. Overall, however, feels younger than 24 years.

    Taste: The alcohol is on the super well involved, as I already had 46-percent, which were sharper. At the beginning, the flavors are still rather restrained. There is again a ripe red apple, oranges, almonds, coffee, clear oak, cane sugar, baking cocoa. Over time, the malt is fuller on the tongue.

    Finish: Medium with oak, allspice, pepper and baking cocoa.
