    The alcohol is neither noticeable in the nose nor in the mouth, the aromas dominate. A really enjoyable dram to enjoy anytime. Well balanced!
    • Nose
      84 84
      I have the sherry in my nose straight away. Together with the sherry notes, a sugary, caramel-like fragrance flatters the nose. Behind it is the fruit basket that you are used to from a bourbon barrel - ripe, light fruity pome fruit variations such as apples and pears, but the sweet fruity variant. And a certain citrus note can also be noticed, but more the zest than the squeezed juice.
      Nice odor composition. You don't notice anything about the alcohol, which is given here as 43% - no burning at all, the alcohol is very nicely integrated.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Very nice mouthfeel. Oily, waxy, the malt lies on the tongue and fills the entire mouth with a delicious taste. Salivation starts immediately. A fruity, sweet start right at the beginning of the first sip. The sherry notes are instantly present. After the second try, the malt becomes clearer and a nice sweet cake note.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A subtle, not intrusive spice nuance to feel at the end on the palate. The fruit component slowly fades and turns into a soft oak. The finish does not last very long, the oak and the dark chocolate associated with it have a little longer in the mouth.
