    • Nose

      Sweet sherry flavors, despite the high alcohol content, not pungent but pleasantly round. A slight herbal note emerges behind sweet raisins. Now the alcohol comes through in the form of mint. With it a pleasant spiciness: darker than cinnamon but no cloves yet. Some black pepper is also included. The wood brings some vanilla and moist sawdust. I also smell ripe cherries. After some time in the glass, the fresh fruits come through even more. Maybe green apple?

      Sweet sherry flavors paired with dried fruits (apricots) and the typical raisins. Forest honey and vanilla mixed with red berries like strawberries and cherries. This is followed by seasoning with cloves and tannins, citrus or green apple and a few herbal notes.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Honey, cherries, raisins, sherry, green apple, seasoning, sawdust, some leather and herbal notes. The finish is of medium length and gets quite dry with slightly tart notes.

    A great sherry whisky. Ripe wood aromas, but nice and clean and spicy.
    • Nose
      Sherry, spicy, dried fruit and especially spicy oak. Minimal sting in the nose. Very fine and very ripe, a few tart berries are still there, but tend to be sweet and spicy, with time even toffee.
    • Taste
      In the mouth the same number of bitter oak aromas, rather hot. Sweet, sherry, pepper and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      long, sweet sherry, toffee, then a lot of oak, tart notes without becoming tart. Bittersweet.

    Strong, fruity, sweet sherry smell.
    The taste contains a sweetness that reminds me a little of PX. Otherwise nice and strong in the mouth.
    Very nicely done!
