    • Nose
      Modern sherry, new paint, raw walnuts, dried prunes and plums.
    • Taste
      A bit oaky, very peppery, raisins, grape juice, cognac, a bit DNA from the old-style sherried whiskies, not bad at all!
    • Finish
      Short-medium, raisins, dried apricots.

    • Nose
      90 90
      Spicy, thick sherry, dried fruit, those sticky cooked prunes, licorice. Anything from salmiak? A bit of vanilla in the background. This should breathe for a while. The water runs in the mouth. I want to taste

      The taste is not as thick as I had expected by the smell.
      A very nice whisky. A little bit of water.
      Not sweet, little bit bitter. The Oloroso comes out nicely, followed by some spiciness and a little vanilla. That's great.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is fairly dry, slightly acidic. Remains quite long and slowly drops to some vanilla tones.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The neat nose bursts with raisins, plump sultanas and prunes, maple syrup, cinder toffee apricot flan, Jaffa cakes and some fine wines (orange Muscat, Malmsey). The palate finds Marsala and oloroso dulce, spotted dick, Eccles cakes, cinnamon toast and toffee and demerara. The reduced nose magically combines fruit cake, raisin fudge and dried figs with orange and coffee-flavoured matchmakers and crunchy nut cornflakes while the palate now delights with rumtopf, soft caramel and demerara on roasted peach, with ginger snaps and peppery black bun to finish. After 16 years in an oloroso butt we transferred this into new oak.
