    Very good whisky. Get a bottle while you still can. It is improving after opening the bottle. 88/89

    [January, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 57 Euro in December, 2014.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 87,5.  My notes state a nicely balanced and delicate modern style sherry profile that is quite delicious.  Easy drinking stuff...

    Nose:
    Rich – sherry driven – but it carves its own unique niche. Just how many different
    Sherry types can you get? Amontillado? / fino? with lighter fruit notes then
    something fleeting, but intensely sweet. The richness gives an impression of Rum
    essence? Over ripe bananas, praline? Oak spices bring up the rear and begin to
    assert as the whisky opens and oxidises. A subtle flurry of desiccated coconut sits within
    the perfectly balanced oak and barley. Taste: fresh, clean, sweet and dry/
    bitter – touch of black pepper heat hits the sides of the tongue  and reminds you it's 46%. An honest grown up
    whisky. This is seriously good stuff. More Oak spice in the finish which lingers and lingers... There's a refreshing absence of damp wood/ dunnage notes in this one. The refill sherry hogs have done a great
    job adding spice and a dousing of sherry whilst letting the age rounded malt
    still have a voice after 20 years in the wood! ….Ooeerrr!!! 95.5pts might be a
    touch generous (Jim Murray) but it certainly gets a 90 from me. This could rise as the bottle is worked and breathes...

    (see Ralfy review 627 for a great explanation of why 20yr old refill sherry casks can be so good!)
