    Absolute sherry bomb that has no equal! However, I felt it personally as something too intense. A good dose of water must be added to lessen the intensity and make the alcohol more digestible. Nevertheless, an interesting Malt, which may be something too "one-sided".

    Heavy sherry, heavy alcohol. Quite some sulfur. It obviously needs some water. However not too much, or otherwise it shows its youth and becomes boring, since there is nothing left but sherry.

    This malt, really surprised me!

    Short restrained start, with the usual suspicious sweet sherry notes
    and suddenly he explodes in the mouth.
    A strong alcohol kick that reminds me a lot of Talisker.
    If you are looking for swirls and action paired with great sherry flavors, you have a prize-reading cruncher here.
    Nothing for gentle minds !!!
