    Finally, I met 96 factories which I think are very good to drink. Let's have a feeling first.

    Deep gold, sweet flavor of brown sugar and jam, with a little flower fragrance; the entrance is smooth and sweet, and the back section is fried, with a sense of oily peach, with a little almond; followed by chocolate, cocoa aftertaste, with sweet dried fruit and sour plum, with a pleasant bitter bottom.

    It's very enjoyable to drink in large quantities. The wine is strong and has a long aftertaste. After adding water, the bitter bottom is eliminated, and the taste is better. This one is worthy of that score. It's really good. I prefer to drink with water.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: We were talking many emotions and true passion here just like in a Bolero (slowed down version of a rumba) from Andaluci­a. Hot, sweet, perfumed, gracious, seductive even slightly provocative aromas were teasing us. On the palate; smooth and rounded, sweet and sultry like a dulce Seville orange wine sipped whilst watching a sunset over the ocean next to your loved one. A drop of water and it was like a warm embrace and a tender sweet kiss whilst the sun disappeared into the sea. After eight years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a first-fill PX hogshead.
