    This is one of them ild wonders that walks the tightrope between age & oak, it is so heavily sherried that the oak is kept in check but for me it is starting to have an impact, if this had been bottled a few years earlier it would have been real wonder.

    This is a sherry heads dream and must one of the most sherried whisky I have tried, on the nose it is similar to this OB distilled around the same time.

    It is too sherried to let the distillery character shine through but a very nice dram for sure
    • Nose
      93 93
      As you would expect from something this dark there is a massive sherry fruit burst to start with , this is about as rich as sherried whisky gets on the nose.
      The fruit is of the plump black berry kind mixed in with blackcurrant, redcurrants and blueberries all stewed and mashed together.
      There is also polish, old woods, varnish and in the background a little smoke and peat. The longer you leave it in the glass the richer it gets and it smells a little oily like from a garage workshop.

      With water:-
      Immediately I notice some chocolate now that was not there before burnt pudding notes emerge, everything else remains unaltered.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Uber rich this is, it has a thick creamy texture and at the moment I am getting some burnt notes like when a jam pudding has been over cooked in the oven and is starting to go black at the edges, the oak is also singing loudly and a few liquorice notes emerge.
      A few drops of water may release more flavours:-

      With Water:-
      The mouthfeel is better, not quite as thick and there is even more fruit, like a mashed dark fruit salad, even richer, a little oak and burnt brown sugar.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Quite long, getting syrupy and becoming dry.

      With Water:-
      The finish is a little better, still dry and syrupy as before but fresher.

    Not too sure whether the distillate can still express itself as the wood influence is so noticeable. In a blind tasting I would have guessed longmorn, so quite an unusual woody but not drying springbank with sweet spices dark chocolate orange, candied fruits, excellent
