For friends oak and sulphurous sherry bombs a recommendation. For all those who want to have a bit more variety of flavors (even with sherry bombs) or even want to foreshadow the distillery character of Pulteney, this is the wrong option. For me something monotonous and uninviting.
All right, a sherry bomb with oak. Fleshy. The alcohol (59%) provides a pleasant cooling touch. Lovage, marjoram. After some time in the glass, the first dark fruits, plum roaster, come up. And again oak. And some kind of indefinable artificial touch for me. From Brennereicharakter there is nothing left.
In the mouth comes this Pulteney with decent oak bitterness, now there is sulfur. Holla. Now Liebstöckl and Sherry, the 59% start to tingle. A classic sherry bomb with sulfur, lots of oak, spices and some dark plum jam.
The finish is naturally medium to long and spicy. Oak and sulfur remain as well as dark fruit and sherry. A really "typical" sherry bomb finish.
