overpowering other interesting flavors. Additionally, the sulfur is
nowhere near as powerful as in other old sherry monsters I had from
Benrinnes. Overall a rather vivid dram and extremely drinkable for
something of this age.
A beautiful convergence of aromatic oak, coconut, and black forest
fruits. Very fruit cakey in general with a slight flintiness. Incredibly
waxy. After a while there are roasted almonds.
The oak is powerful, but pleasantly sweet. Raisins, stewed plums, maybe
blackberry marmalade. Heather honey, menthol and licorice.
Rather long. Well-balanced with sweet undertones of chocolate and more licorice.
