    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 261 bottles from cask no. 5300In the bottle: old polished mahogany, with scarlet lights – as if it had been wine finished, but we know that this one is from an unusual European oak ex-sherry hogshead. In the glass: Amontillado sherry. A mild nose; profound, but slow to give up its secrets: first sweet fondant, then crystallised plums, then bruised apples in calvados, with a whiff of candlewax. A drop of water loosens the aroma complex and introduces scents of warm vinyl/expensive motor cars. At natural strength the taste is sweet overall, with an aged mustiness in the aftertaste; water enhances the mouth-feel, reduces the sweetness and introduces an attractive spiciness. Now the aftertaste is of sugared almonds.A hint of smoke shows the true age of this fascinating whisky.
