    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.
    • Nose
      A rather restrained nose, the orange and wild berry flavors can only guess. Overall, the 25 Lenze but quite fresh in the nose.
    • Taste
      Quite anachronistic approach, the plywood strikes it quite bitter. The 44 turns make this Islay Malt look pretty thin and almost watery.
    • Finish
      At best medium long and without new impressions
