    I just opened the bottle - it's very heavy indeed but so far I'm pretty OK with it. Let's see how it develops. It takes water already very well.
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry, meaty, ham, leathery - with water some toffee and even little fruity notes come out
    • Taste
      Very oily, mellow, thick - heavy sherry wood, rather dry, litte bitterness like coffee or dark chocolate, meat and slightly smoked ham, at least no big leather boots - with water it becomes actually smoother and more aromas come out - even a bit fruity notes
    • Finish
      Long and warm

    When just opened, for me it was verry heavy and harsh . Like you almost need a knife and fork to get trough . It got better and better , and after being opened for 2 weeks now, ........... its Fantastic . Top 5 of of the best sherried whiskies i ever had. its amazing, I realy love it
