    I often use references to wood in my notes, which are pleasantly occupied in this malt. The malt is not a wooden board, the wood is restrained enough to be on a level with sweetness and fruitiness. Here was clearly used for me a more often used refill Sherry Cask, since of the sherry flavors hardly anything is left. My personal taste would have been better hit with a little more sherry, but I appreciate whiskys, which also sometimes let the wood in the foreground. 88/100.
    • Nose
      Instant Oak, Instant Coffee. Chocolate, roasted walnuts, pencil (thank you whisky wheel), dried apricots, raisins. The sherry portion is rather reserved, the barrel manifests itself for the most part on wood content instead of sherry. Spicy honey is included. Little sweetness at first, later more. Maple syrup, light cake batter, jam.
    • Taste
      dried apricots, passion fruit, oak. Sour, sweet, fruity and woody-spicy. Pine nuts. Tobacco. The malt is sour-fruity and tingling in the mouth and is creamy, sweet and wooden-herb.
    • Finish
      Delicately tingle the aromas. Spicy oak, preserved milk, pine nuts. Dark chocolate. Nutty. Leather. Woody barrel wort lasts a long time.

    Beeswax, white honey, pears and oranges. Then even more fruits like bananas and pineapples, but it is kinda hard to differentiate them. There is also a bit of hey in the background.


    Smooth and creamy. Fruit salad and pineapple cream. Followed by black pepper corns balanced by hints of sugarcane, oak and anise. Ends with pink grapefruits. Altogether not as exciting as the nose.


    Long. Smooth and warming. Milk chocolate and a bit of oak.


    This is of course no sherry bomb like the original bottlings but that was expected given the Refill Sherry Hogshead. This expression is rather elegant and subtle with a distinctive focus on the distillery character. A very fine single malt although the rest is not as exciting as the fantastic nose. Especially the finish is pretty pale.
