    A classic sherry bomb (although it is probably a wine finish), you notice that when you first sniff. Rum raisins, sweetened dried plums, dark chocolate, espresso. As it should be for a beautiful Sherry Glengoyne, but to be honest it's a bit interchangeable. You can smell something like overripe banana in the background.
    The Alk is very well integrated, you would be blind more than 16 years. It smells soft and creamy, and that's exactly how it is in the mouth. Nothing stings or burns, the aromas spread gently and gently. The same aromas remain, dominated by sherry and now with a little more sweetness but also spice, a bit tart oak. The finish is long with light pepper and very little sharpness on the edge of the tongue, and with much darker, slightly bitter chocolate, coffee, leather and brown sugar.

    Delicious sherry drinking whisky, not very special compared to other sherry bombs, but deliciously tasty. I would like more of this than just a sample!
