    Luckily no sulphur-loaded barrel. My whisky heart frolics. A modern sherry malt of a very high standard with a certain complexity.
    Is it interchangeable? Yes, but a worthy opponent is sure to cost a lot more than this tasty Burgie.

    You have to give it time, then it develops its full potential.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Sherry is in the air and not a little. The glass has been standing for about 10 minutes. The alcohol is very well integrated. Intense oloroso notes with red fruits and a certain dry wood note. Sugar candy, plums, removed caramel, nougat and chocolate follow, a bit of red wine cake.
      Over time a certain rye aroma and breadiness, cool.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Proper start, the cheeks and the tongue are somewhat tart. Dry, Spicy, Oloroso, BAM! Roasted hazelnuts, roasted almonds, dark cherry jam with a certain syrupy mouthfeel and taste. Getting sweeter but luckily not too sweet.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite a long finish, even on the first sip. Dark chocolate, spice, oak, you can count the years. Definitely well matured and not gone like many current sherry malts.
