    Nose: soot, sherbet dibdabs, blackcurrant liquorice
    Palate: burnt ends, rib tips and barbecue brisket
    Finish: piquillo peppers, Ribena and lemon verbena

    This is my favourite of the three oloroso releases

  4. whisky_garage scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    The aroma is rich, multifaceted, sweet. Spicy spices, nettles, candy sweetness.
    We stood and breathed .... Sea breeze, butter cream, stale cookies, some ammonia and industrial notes
    Red currant, raspberry jam, noble tobacco and woody shades.
    The taste is rich, knits. Fruit and mineral history, chokeberry, dried fruits, sea salt, spices, dark chocolate, barrel.
    The finish is long. Dried fruits, dark chocolate, some spices, apricot kernel, barrel. A hint of industrial notes (motor oil).

    Conclusion: Powerful, bright, versatile, rich in shades and midtones, with a recognizable profile and style. Delicious in one word.
    One thing repels, the secondary market price????.

    Oh this is a much more elegant rounded version of the 8yr. Peat/funk is subdued and a nice oak presence joins dark fruits and a juicy finish. It’s in a class of its own
    • Nose
      90 90
      Raisin, leather, strawberry cream, green thistle
    • Taste
      92 92
      Elegant, Sherry is fruit compote (strawberry, raspberry, fig), oak is here and rounding off the palate from being too sweet, dark chocolate, light spices
    • Finish
      92 92
      Juicy, mouthwatering, berries and oak

  8. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tasted in f2f with the version for the USA. Here we are not on 100% Oloroso.

    In itself no fault, but also a little less personality than the rest of the series. These little flaws that make drams more memorable.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Nose rather closed at first.
      Roasted almonds, walnuts, cooked figs. Plum.
      Wood, black pepper, spices.
      Licorice. Light camphor.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth there is a lot more plum. And always a good dose of dried fruit.
      Caramel, liquorice, toffee, wood, spices.
      Black pepper, coffee. Greasy leather.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Final on oily leather, dried fruits, plum and black pepper.
      Light minty freshness.

  9. Palindrome did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Was this finished in oloroso casks or bourbon casks? The label says it was matured first in oloroso and then in bourbon. That seems backwards. Also, why is it called "single cask" if it used two casks? I know there was one cask at a time, but is that really a "single cask?"
