Rostrot - wildly running thin legs
For his 60,6% starts the quite restrained, ie the alcohol does not overwhelm a directly, but the Sherrynoten are directly in the nose, surrounded by strong rather medical smoke. In the background I find some caramel - or is it the famous "Cow Stable"? - yes, that's more in the direction of the stable.
The onset but worn by alcohol, smoky / phenolic, but also the sherry comes through after a few seconds, now on the tongue "stall". Because of the sheer power, at least for me, not really more flavors spread. The second sip comes with some cherry.
Long, smoky, and a little above everything.
Oh yes, he has leeway, the addition of a few drops of water makes it for me a little more complacent and oily. In the nose it almost flattens down in taste then something. Here you have to play - I'm still experimenting.
Not really complex, but exactly what you expect for 11yo PC with> 60% from the sherry barrel. A dram who personally joins me in the good to very good PC UA bottlings of the past few months (SSMC, SCOMA, Nürnberger Whiskystammtisch) and yet has its own character. We are happy to have something in reserve.
