    Excellent the sherry does not dominate on this one an almost perfect balance.
    • Nose
      Fruity on blackberry and raspberry, maple and pecan pie.
    • Taste
      Very smooth and fruity almost like a dark fruit trifle with cream. There is a little orange, prunes and raisin.
    • Finish
      Long and juicy.

    Macduff 10 yo 2000 (56,5%, Creative Whisky Co. for The Bonding Dram, sherry butt #3525, 200 btl.)

    Nose: juicy start with cooked fruits and tinned fruits on syrup. Then slowly growing spicier (mainly cinnamon) with some Mexican chocolate disks. Gingerbread cake. Some nutty aromas and raisins. Baked apples. A lovely sherry profile. Water makes it slightly more fragrant and brings out oranges. Mouth: good attack, sweet, now with the same spices really up front. A light peppery prickle. Rum & raisins, figs, prunes. Also fresher fruits (berries and apples). Nice, and best without water. Finish: long and spicy with some Mon Cherie notes.

    Available from The Bonding Dram for € 50. Great price / quality – recommended if you’re into fresh and juicy sherry. You can also buy a sample if you want to try it.

    Score: 89/100

    • Nose
      A shy nose initially, unexpected for its colour and ABV. It take same time to come loose. Raisin, orange and chestnut. Eventually more mocha. A few drops of water help the nose unfold better and bring up some apple, but then still I find it somewhat reserved.
    • Taste
      Now the impact really comes. Raisin, orange, prune, roasted almond, dark
      cherry, mocha and date. With water more spice like pepper and liquorice. Nice.
    • Finish
      Pretty long with raisin, dark chocolate, date, orange, prune, apple, liquorice and smoke.

    Very pleasant sherry monster. Bang for your buck as well.
    • Nose
      Powerful sherry, raisins, dark fruits, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Vegetal sherry, intense sweetness buth also remarkably fresh. Figs and prunes.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and rounded. Some spiciness at the end.
