    This one is definitely for Xmas - great!
    • Nose
      Sweet sherry wood, dried fruits, tons of raisins, xmas spice, candied fruits, brown sugar - really not bad
    • Taste
      Very oily and creamy, lots of dried fruits, spices, nutmeg, good sweetness, sherry wood, hints of rubber and leather, some dark chocolate too - very good
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, sweet, peppery, a bit zesty

    sergeIt’s a no-age-statement version, a ‘tribute to the daily dram that the
    Distillery folk enjoyed three times each day from the copper teapot in the
    distillery canteen’ according to the official website. I believe it’s only
    available at the distillery. Colour: amber with red hues. Nose: funny how it
    ‘noses’ like some marc de gewurztraminer at first, with these whiffs of litchis
    and rosewater. Then we get more classic fruity sherry, with strawberry jam, a
    little sugarcane, sultanas, bananas flambéed… Powerful but noseable at almost
    60% vol. With water: as often with these kinds of sherry treatment, there’s more
    herbal teas, rosehips, hawthorn, marshmallows… And a little hay as well. Mouth
    (neat): rich and young, with an unexpected spiciness that does hint more at
    virgin oak than genuine sherry butts. I mean, there’s a lot of ginger and
    cardamom, for example… It’s also a little kirschy. With water: all good now,
    even if this feeling of ‘new oak’ remains. That hints at a finishing in
    sherry-treated fresh oak, but it does not say, so I may well be completely
    wrong. I probably am. Finish: long, more on liqueur-filled chocolate. Litres of
    plum spirit at the retro-olfaction. Comments: interesting, a kind of ‘modern’
    sherriness. Worth trying for sure, and I believe it’s not very expensive. They
    also have it from their website.

    • Nose
      Raisins. Quite spicy. Very sweet, reminds me of crème brulee. Full. Charcoal.
    • Taste
      Very spicy at the beginning: Cinnamon, ginger, aniseed, clove. Turbulent and nervous. But very nice. After a few seconds the spices retreat and dried fruit are left. With water the whisky is more approachable and the spices are more in balance with the dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy, slightly bitter.

    Nose: First fill oloroso for sure yo!, dry, oak, prunes, banana, herbal tea

    Mouth: dry sherry, oily, vanilla, sweetened herbal tea, honey and a tad oak with tanins

    Finish: Sherry, cherry, banana, medium long, strong back tea, hints tanins again

    Comments: Good oloroso influence but behind the oloroso it`s a tad unround. The oaky tanins seems a bit off and generally it isn`t overly complex when you substract the oloroso.
