    For most people, the nose will probably be the best and most rewarding part. For sherry-lovers, the palate comes close to perfection, but loses points at the very end.

    Tasted in 2013, at Whiskybar "Het Kompas" on the island of Texel, The Netherlands.
    • Nose
      As you might have guessed, given the age, the first-fill cask, and not to mention the intensely dark color, there's hefty sherry on the nose. Raisins, cigar boxes, wood, minty chocolate... It's all there immediately, almost overwhelmingly so. Beautiful.
    • Taste
      Whoa. The biggest sherry monster I've tasted yet, albeit not as drying as I would have expected, which is always a good thing with these kind of whiskies. Still, you have to love this style, because there are tannins present -- but they're "rounded" tannins, not super-oaky. It's still very thick, "fat", delightfully smooth. The taste is mostly on raisins and dark wine, with lots of mint and some chocolate or coffeeish notes in the background.
    • Finish
      Long, with the (pepper)mint growing stronger, but a bit bitter and, alas, drying at the end.
