    Nose: Beautiful spicy sherry notes, dried fruit, slightly flavored fruits. Mouth: strong, warming, sherry, fruit, slightly sulphurous. Departure: wood, slightly acidic, a lot of sherry fruit, then wood and a great tobacco note.

    Blind tasting of a sample. I was convinced I spotted quite some peat.
    • Nose
      Cherry, plum, apricot, caramel, apple syrup and a whiff of peat. Eventually a little vanilla cookie. With water more apricot.
    • Taste
      Plum, cherry, peat ash, tobacco, caramel, apricot, chocolate and leather.
    • Finish
      Cocoa, smoke, plum, toffee, tobacco and apricot.

    This is an archetype of sherry whisky, the harsh variety, not the sweet one. The oak makes me close to a higher age, 18 years or more, and I suspect an alcoholic strength of 50+. That was certainly a pure Sherryfassreifung and indeed from European barrels, maybe even firstfill. The distillery is difficult, I do not want to commit myself, the last failures have unsettled me, but rather Glendronach than Glenfarclas. Yes, actually I'm sure: Glendronach. Maybe I had it already in the glass, he seems familiar, only the high alcohol content makes me startled. Maybe it's a single cask bottling. In any case, this is exactly my thing, the big sherry bombs are for me just the culmination of whisky enjoyment and this is clearly one of them blind tasting
    • Nose
      Immediately an intense sherry aroma rises in my nose. A whole army of red fruits is approaching: raisins, cherries, currants and whatnot. At first impression, the alcohol stings something until my nose has got used to it. I suspect a higher alcohol content. Nevertheless, I will try first undiluted. I can also find oak. The smell is familiar to me. My first thought is towards Glenfarclas.

    • Finish
      Again, the oak dominates. The finish is long, but not eternal, but at the very end, fruit will come through again: orange in dark chocolate.

    Classic Sherry nose. Mouth alive and warm, powerfully Sherry. Long final. Very good.
