  5. autowatch092 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Dark chestnut
    Nose: Prunes, morello cherries, old leather, hints of balsamic vinegar, orange zest, cardamom and nutmeg.
    Palate: Prunes, cherries, cassis, strong espresso with a drop of balsamic vinegar, cardamom and nutmeg.
    Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
    Overall: A quintessential sherry monster, old but not too woody, very rich with an emphasis on fruity flavours.

    Producer`s Notes
    Apprearance:Rich mahogany with deep hints of cherry wood.
    Nose: A crescendo of Demerara sugar and Pedro Ximenez sherry notes, and then drifting into the picture dark chocolate and figs.
    Palate: Luxuriant chocolate-coated raisins, and a wave of spices followed by an explosion of sweet molasses, Demerara and mocha.
