matured in an almost uberactive sherry cask. Every single time the
results were astonishing and this one is no exception.
thing all of those have in common is a very mild nose in terms of
alcoholic strength even though all of them were bottled at a cask
strength of at least 60% Vol. with this Glenrothes being the strongest
Second thing of course is the heavy sherry influence. It
kills the character of the distillery almost completely. You can't
distinguish between them, at least I can't. Usually Glenrothes produces a
very distinctive aroma profile but I can't find it here.
everything you expect from a sherry cask matured whisky with that
color: Oranges, blood oranges, in general dark fruits, nuts, vanilla, toffee...
On the palate you will feel the alcohol of course and there is plenty of room to add some water if you like.
There is some oak in the finish but it is very subtle and loses the fight against the sherry aromas and the alcohol.
