    One of the "mothers of all finished whiskys", a perfect composition without disturbing the falling drops, as I was allowed to experience it with other finishes. - I could not detect anything of "sulfur" in my batch, but yes - our taste buds react differently and our brain exerts different associations on the stimuli.
    • Nose
      At first I am reminded of a hearty bite in a fresh sugarcane in my youth. Then come toffee, chocolate and then only the thoughts of a sherrydurchtraenktes barrel. All together gives a lively harmony.
    • Taste
      Dry sherry barrel; powerful, but soft; clear, but not destructive or too intrusive. Chocolate, fruit, spices.
    • Finish
      Everything goes over in the warming finish, pleasantly soft. Maybe there are still orange peels?

    • Nose
      84 84
      Light fruits, a little vanilla and, over time, cherries, very pleasant and unobtrusive. Spices and some wood.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A nice sweetness, the first sip is also quite strong. The 46% look good on him. Now you can see the spicy wood note, dark cherries.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium length, a tingling sensation remains on the tongue and an interplay of slight bitterness and the sherry notes occurs. Then again dark cherries with a hint of chocolate.

      I haven't had it for a long time and am very positively surprised. Unfortunately I still have no comparison to its successors with 43%.

    • Nose
      Warm aromas of herbs, soft chocolate and raisins with hints of sweet honey, caramel and toffee
    • Taste
      A delicious sweet sherry flavor with notes of sultanas, orange, walnuts, butterscotch and hints of a rich array of warming herbs
    • Finish
      Long and pleasant aftertaste of spicy orange and hazelnuts dipped in dark chocolate

    Has been aged for 10 years in American white oak which has been
    previously bourbon. After this long period the distillate is poured into
    Spanish Oloroso sherry casks for a two year finish to get the whole finish.

      Slowly drying, with lingering, gingery oak a hint of cocoa
