- Certainly not a very modern style. It's basically liquid liquorice to me, but the nose says some sulfurous casks may have been involved. Not as good as the Dailuaine FF.
- Very good.
Aromatic, nutty, a bit flowery, indeed sherry with a touch of smoke.
Dried fruit, vanilla,honey en sherry tones.
Herbal aftertaste, but also the sherry tones, nutty, malty. And some smoky hints.
- Superb to put it simply. Obvious cherries and wood, combined with some dried fruits and a hint of citrus and prices. Very nice indeed, only the price....
- A great malt, with big flavors. A sherry lovers Delight!
A deep sherry character with some fruity and slightly floral notes. (diluted: the fruit brings out more fruit aroma's a lovely tingle estery box)
Quite full of flavor with pungy sherry flavors at first, than some wood spices follow (diluted: some honey with a gingery like spicyness, but some estery notes can be found aswel)
Full, rounded, tasty and long (diluted: juicy and drying)
