    Sherry butt? Unfortunately, I can not find any typical sherry flavors. It dominates the wooden bitterness, pepper or sharpness and intense nut. Nevertheless, I find the Speyside great and rock solid.
    • Nose
      A pleasant, fruity aroma flows out of the glass. A slightly sprightly alcoholic note mixes with the fruity nose. Subtle vanilla and fine malt join it. A hint of glue develops into a slightly snappy alcohol note.
    • Taste
      The first sip. Wooden oak dominates. First slightly bitter, then the wood becomes more intense and ends with a load of pepper. Now light fruit comes to light, a touch of subtle sherry comes to it. In the finish, an extreme nut aroma develops.
    • Finish
      The intense wood note is reflected in the long and voluminous finish again. Again, this pepper note followed by nut and slight bitterness.
