The young age is noticeable, the alcohol is noticeable. Interesting, tangy, tangy sherry with oriental spices. Very oily and maritime. The distillery comes through the barrel nicely on the oily side, even if the barrel had a very strong effect. Raisins, pickled dried plums, a little cinnamon and further strong spices with light curry powder.
Here the waxy side comes to the fore, beautiful bitter sherry still very spicy, salty and now only slightly oily, but now also great combined with the mineral and waxy side of this "secret" distillery. A rather dirty dram, maybe with a bit of sulfur, but for me a nice combination of sherry, all kinds of spices and mineral-waxy aromas. I had hoped for such a taste from this bottling. The alcohol is now well integrated for 10 years, the dram has power and a lot of taste but the alcohol does not burn. Leather and wet tobacco, light liquorice and a little menthol are added. Towards the finish, a bit more spicy dark forest honey.
Medium long, still very tart and spicy with mineral notes and tart sherry with leather and cinnamon. Then a bitter, slightly bitter and mineral note lingers in the mouth for a long time.
I have to deal with the dram more often and in more detail, it looks young to the nose, but then in the taste it is very interesting and also typical of a distillery. I'll give it a little more time and then it could turn out to be a nice, if rather unspectacular, drinking whisky.
N-87, T-88, F-87 for 87 points that are still expandable.
