- Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 146 bottles from cask no. 2786
A rare refill Spanish oak ex-sherry hogshead that has produced an inviting deep umber colour. The mild bead is to be expected at this naturally low strength. A rich winey nose of old tawny port is both welcoming and warm, with a mellow rum toft and moist fruit cake in the background. Then roasting tin deglazed with oloroso sherry and a base note of 80% cocoa dark chocolate. A smooth texture on the palate, and a underlying taste that is both sweet and (dried) fruity. Drying slightly in the finish with a hint of old oloroso and dark chocolate, and developing towards old Madeira. At reduced strength there is a buttery treacle toffee note with more oloroso sherry. Truly venerable.

- This Bunna has made fun with his great color, which surprisingly fails for a refill cask. Unfortunately, this filling me but then disappointed. Low presence in the nose and a palate that is too thin, with too much bitter substances and wood hanging.
A rather restrained nose, the orange and wild berry flavors can only guess. Overall, the 25 Lenze but quite fresh in the nose.
Quite anachronistic approach, the plywood strikes it quite bitter. The 44 turns make this Islay Malt look pretty thin and almost watery.
At best medium long and without new impressions
