Color
Burnt umber
Nose

The colour makes you think this is an ultimate sherry bomb. At first nosing, it's not just overpowering sherry (luckily). Of course, some nutty and sweet (raisin) notes of a medium sweet sherry are there. Yet there is more: wood, spice (also from the wood), orange and apricot. After a while, treacle (Appelstroop from the Netherlands) shows. Behind this all, there is a gentle salty, beefy undertone, with old leather. 

Taste

It has a punchy, salty and beefy attack, with quite some pepper too. It's followed by orange, some dried fruit (mainly date), bitter chocolate and coffee. It's certainly earthier than on the nose, with tobacco. 

Finish

The finish is long, savoury, slightly sour (which is good), and medium bitter. There is pepper, date, raisin, dark chocolate and still some tobacco. Nicely balanced.

Comments

Compared this one with https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/43083/longmorn-1996-vw. This one seems to be a sweeter version. It is, but that's because the other is actually quite dry. Overall, this one is more complex, friendlier and fruitier. 

Cheers! Paul
