Nose: very distinct dark sherry with strong alcoholic notes, the 61.7% bite vigorously, after the first alcohol is gone, great sherry notes come to light: dark fruits, raisins, dried bananas, nuts, strong oak, behind come Christmas spices like Cinnamon and cardamom out - for the age very complex
Taste: sherry full, the alcohol stays back, but then bites, raisins, plums, almonds, cherry and strong oak flavors
Finish: quite short according to the age, but still distinct sherry / wine notes, and a lot of oak with water: a few drops are not enough to "combat" the strong alcohol, with significantly more water it changes extremely, there are an incredible number of citrus fruits added: tangerines, lemons and oranges, but he also shows a young age, since he then lacks something the depth. Therefore - please without water, even if the alcohol is very strong at the beginning - give him time !!!
Conclusion: Great barrel, great malt, although maybe a bit too young, but that makes him wild and untamed. And because of the strong oak, he should not have stayed in the barrel any longer - 88 points
