Interesting nose, subtly sweet but also tart and with a strong citrus and acid content. Cane sugar, mint, rhumus, and very strong raisins. Surprisingly soft, but then in between slightly pungent waves of alcohol.
Clear, but rather unusual sherry profile.
In the mouth you notice the young age more strongly, it has a lot of puff under the hood and gives good pepper and spiciness.
The aromas continue naturally from the nose and continue into the finish. Slightly tart, a little bitter, sour and yet somehow sweet with berries and citrus fruits, an interesting interplay. Also rhumro slices and plums, and something like cherry. The alcohol is a little too strong for me.
The finish is the consistent continuation of the taste, nothing new is added. Delicious but a little too spicy.
So I try a little water.
Your nose becomes a bit tart, with cane sugar and sour cherries. The mouth becomes rounder and softer, but still with good pepper and a very typical sherry profile. The bottling is becoming more of a standard sherry barrel drinking whisky, which differs less from other sherry bombs. The finish is now rather short.
A delicious sherry paint that is a bit too aggressive for me.
