  2. Matt80 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet malt, honey, floral, very similat to the '15'.  Sherry starts to impose itself over time with an aroma of dates and raisins, mint chocolate and fresh mint.  With oxidisation there are herbal notes and wet grass.

      With water - White wine, stewed pears, much less sherry influence, a little sugary.
    • Taste
      Very austere to begin with, spice, slightly bitter oak.  After a while it becomes very herbal.

      With water - Spicier, more wood influence.
    • Finish
      Medium/long, very peppery, oak, tannins.

      With water - Shorter finish, oakier.
