    It is a new distillery and therefore quite pricey, that is 60€ for 3 years. On the other hand, it reaches a quality and intensity, for which others need 10 years. Probably 2nd fill butts or butts which contained sherry for only a short time. A very nice composition without any age character.

      Sweet with orange peel, fresh/young sherry, grapes, plums, dried fruits, bisquit, milk chocolate and blackberry.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dry, with sherry, apricots, plums, raisins, almonds, blackberries and milk chocolate with coffee. It has a nice intensity
    • Finish

      Medium to long. At first sherry, grapes and milk chocolate with coffee bits, midway slightly alcoholic, then nutmeg and liquorice.

    A very mediocre Sherry cask whisky
    Try a glass, but never buy the whole bottle
    • Nose
      80 80
      It smells of sulfur, pickles! Close to saltpeter, slightly smoky, slightly salty, not very sweet dried fruit, chocolate, with some new wine flavor
    • Taste
      82 82
      Very light, lightly malted and sweet, quickly switching to light dried fruit, chocolate, slightly salty back end with some bitterness
    • Finish
      80 80
      Very short, slightly fruity, coffee, dry wood

    Lindores Abbey, 3 years, "The Casks of Lindores - Sherry", 49.4% alc. Original bottling (2022). Ageing: Oloroso sherry casks (butts).

    Nose: Plum cake and dried fruit, as well as soy sauce and oyster mushrooms, which makes the Lindores look a bit dirtier for a moment. The sweetness quickly regains the upper hand and comes along with apricots and figs. Remove some rum balls.

    Palate: Much less sweet than expected and, above all, much drier. Raisins, dried apricots, dried cranberries. In addition, almonds and pecans, some coffee chocolate and a delicate spice component.

    Finish: Quite long, gets a decent bitterness at the end. Espresso, dark chocolate, nutmeg.

    Conclusion: Another really mature looking Lindores. Young and tasty. 85/100 points (2022).
