    Between this one and cask 1144 57.4% I think cask 1144 is a little better balance wise.

    • Nose

      Dark fruit nose, mixed with old leather, roasted nuts, hints of orange emerge, caramel and wafer
    • Taste

      oh this is bitter and woody but the bitterness id from the fruit on show which is not what I was expecting.
      Salted caramel, glazed fruits, plenty of spices, with the stewed fruit bitterness remaining.

      This tastes old and the oak is starting to shout but it is still ok as the sherry is of quality.

      Long, spicy, keeps going

      With water the nose improves, and the palate gets sweeter and more syrupy. this is better with water.

      This whisky shows its age but I like it, quality casks, not top draw but nice nonetheless,
