  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A good example of sherried clyne.
    • Nose
      Colour is that certain refill sherry tone that's between ex-bourbon's more golden and coppery tint and deeper red and brown of first fill or 2nd fill oloroso and px, and not as vivid as any the aforementioned. 

      Sherry is easy to find on the nose, which is a little spicy with some cloves maybe, a bit of tobacco, and then this wonderful very ripe fruit aroma. Not like peaches but very close and quite sweet. You can find the familiar waxiness here but it isn't the first thing I noticed.
    • Taste
      Litchis, mango juice and leather. Very little oak. Needs a bit of water on account of hotness to stop cutting the tongue but already at 2 tsp it seems to be settling down well. It is a little 'dirty' but in a positive way. Dried dates. Less sweet on the palate than the nose promised, but the ripe fruit side of this gets stronger with more water. 
    • Finish
      Well lasting with enough water. Full but it would need just some little bit of extra twist to get to 90ish points.
