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).
