    If you've had oloroso sherry, you can tell by a mile away this is oloroso matured. Nutty, raisins, fruity and drying. It's a swimmer, i've drowned it and it holds up. I prefer it with water, milk chocolate will then appear. But I find it hard to see the distillery karakter. Almost no smoke, probably because of the sherry.

    Oh, raisins and candied fruit, followed by honey. Pineapple, hint of citrus. Dry mouth feel, copes well with water. Leather and sherry sweetness. Long lasting and warming. Similar to HP single cask bottlings around 15 yo, but, who knows what the distillery is….

    This tastes like a Highland Park with Oloroso influence:

    Honey, heathery peat, sultanas, rich treacle, cinnamon bun dough, medium roast coffee, rooibos tea, pressed flowers, Angostura orange bitters, and a hint of menthol powder. This is a super-easy drinker (drinks more like 50%abv than 60%).
