    87/88. Compared it to cask 72, which doesn't have that dirty touch at all.
    • Nose
      Salted caramel, cherry, prune and raspberry. Initially dirty with a whiff of sulphur. With water it gets smoother with some apple.
    • Taste
      Toffee, cherry, bramble, pepper and clove. Also here some apple comes through when adding water.
    • Finish
      Toffee, cherry, cocoa, cereals and apple.

    Very glad I could still find this bottle. Bottled in june 2007 and bought in february 2015...
    • Nose
      A bit pungent, spicy, a little bit of acetone-like but after a while more of the sherry notes
    • Taste
      Wow, a hint of cinnamon followed by raisins and dried fruits, a hint of chocolate as well. It's a young whisky but it has a nice medium body
    • Finish
      Lovely long finish, sherry sweetness at first, later more like the aftertaste of coffee.
