    [October, 2018] Good George really did it! He cashed in my old voucher from more than 10 years ago for a fine selection of The Family Casks drams among them such rarities like 1964-S14, 1965-Sp15, 1971-W15, 1973-W15 and six more (among them this one). I guess all of his picks are great...

    ...and this one confirms my guess. It is a flawless modern sherried dram that is a little shy first but opens up very nicely after some breathing. The taste is best when neat while the finish is a little too drying-bitter (for my taste buds only, others might enjoy this)...
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is russetmuscat and the nose offers a delicate and flawless modern sherry profile that is mainly centered around spices and herbs. Some shy fruity and chocolatey aromas dare to show up after a while as do later honey and waxy notes. All quite balanced but not really impressive, to be honest...
    • Taste
      91 91
      The taste is nicely layered on herbal sherry flavours with some chocolatey and toffee-marzipan notes. That is tasty! After some chewing coffee beans and spices join in the taste before the woods have the last words, as usual. Water releases more fine aromas in the nose and turns the taste and finish smoother but flatter too - I like to nose this dram reduced but to drink it neat (using two glasses).
    • Finish
      88 88
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with a minor drying moment from the tannins. The finish is long and much more spicy than the taste (peppers, chili, ginger) with a stronger dark chocolatey flavour. It turns rather bitter this way and a drying-astringent feeling pops up towards the end.
