Nose

Rather closed for a GD. Yet, it's the friendlier side of oloroso matured GDs, mind you. No real sulphuric nor meaty smells, just dunnage warehouse and oxidising grapes. Further, there is orange juice, prune, date, treacle, coffee and cocoa.

Taste

Now we're talking! Full-bodied, with nice acidity, and initial dryness as oloroso matured whiskies can deliver. The taste is full of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, treacle, prune, coffee and the most dark chocolate you can imagine. Water is recommended, as it edges off the dryness. 

Finish

A nice warming, spicy aftertaste (cinnamon, clove), with dried fruit (date, prune), coffee, and dark chocolate.

Comments

Seriously good, yet not the best Oloroso matured GD I had.

Cheers! Paul

Color
Brown sherry
Nose

Sherry classique, fruits rouges bien mûrs, raisins, chocolat au lait, noisettes et amandes, un peu de chêne et de fumée.

Avec de l'eau: un poil de tabac en sus.

Taste

Mélange de fruits (cerises, mûres, oranges, raisins...), chocolat au café, pas mal d'épices, milieu bouche plus sec sur le chêne.

Avec de l'eau: côté sirupeux plus intense.

Finish

Assez longue sur le bois et les épices.

Comments

Vraiment très bon.

herbs and spices. raisins and pear.

Delicate, a bit too short for my liking.

lovely fruits appear, bramble and prunes

Nose

The nose starts on the classics: plums, figs, rum raisins with an underlying layer of roasted nuts. Then some almond paste, freshly polished saddle, milk chocolate and sniffing tobacco. A touch of woodsmoke. Quite wonderful.

Taste

Nice attack with a mouth filling creaminess, almost syrupy in fact. That makes for a nice bridge to the  Sirop de Liège. Orange marmalade, chocolate with a hint of espresso. Nicely spiced, too. Black pepper and cinnamon. Mildly drying from the oak, but far from oaky. Very nice and complex. Layered, as they say.

Finish

The finish is very long and sweet with a great spiciness.

Comments

Holy crap, this is a grand sherried whisky. Still around for 125 EUR. Recommended! Thanks, GlenPiWi.

Prune, date, raisin, hazelnut, caramel and spice.

Bottler`s Tasting Notes:


Appearance: Rich amber flecked with ruby.

Nose: Crisp oak and citrus peel merge with dried dark raisins, prunes and hint of cedar wood.

Palate: Lashings of dark fruit syrup with a depth of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Spiced with sweet toasted oak and hints of rich orange marmalade which gently round off the long sherried expression.
