    • Taste

      Quite punchy on the palate - some spice, full flavoured. Full bodied (couldn't detect any smoky notes)

      Keeps going and gets bigger over time.

    Vatted from balanced of various bourbon casks from a single distillery that undergo a further 3 months in octave Sherry cask...if I understand correctly.

    P- Sweet spice driven, charred oak, creamy and rounded with sugar frosted cookies. (86/20)

    F- Short-medium, charred, creamy, tropical fruit, melon with hint of sweet tobacco smokes. (86/20)

    B/B- 86/20

      Dark grapes, Heavy aromas. Typical sherry
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here is the name of the program: Smoke aromas, which remained in the smell entirely in the dark. Very pleasant sweetness and many dark fruits, maybe grapes and blackberries.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium long, a bit sharp, but very pleasant.
