    Alter, Sherry, top!
    • Nose
      In der Nase dominieren weiche dunkelfruchtige Sherrytöne, Klebrig-süss Richtung Datteln und Feigen, Weinbeeren. Alkohol, der von Anfang an nicht stark spürbar ist, zieht sich immer weiter zurück.
    • Taste
      Der Sherry harmoniert mit Starker Würze der Eiche. Nciht gummig, voluminös, mit etwas Wasser noch weicher. Mit Wasser mehr dunkle Früchte,
    • Finish
      Starke alte Eiche bleibt sehr aromatisch zurück. Geniales Mundgefühl...zum nicht mehr Zähneputzen.

    WITH WATER

    The nose is a little more restrained but the palate just has too much sherry and the profile is swamped.

    Massive sherry but its nothing out the ordinary, saying that probably better than all the shite Glendronach are putting out.

    Notes from a sample
    • Nose
      rhubarb & apple crumble, burnt brown sugar, crème Brulee, blueberry, caramel and dark toffee, 

      Blackberry, heavy sherry and red wine vinegar 
    • Taste
      Sharp and a little bitter but there is a then some sweetness and light soy sauce mixed in with blackberry.

      Very jammy, full of dark forest fruits but its mainly blackcurrant jam, its thick & syrupy. but the palate
    • Finish
      Good length with the sherry influence increasing

    sample.

    This is a heavy Whisky. One dram leaves you exhausted. A respectful 90.
    • Nose
      Baked apple at first. Then some engine oil. Very soft yet intense. Some raisins. A little bit of ham. Quite spicy aswell. A little bit of caramel and tobacco. Even a bit earthy. Very substantial nose, but you need to be patient and you need to work it a little.
    • Taste
      More sherried in a very thick, but not overwhelming kinda way. Raisins with honey and caramel. Strong spicy notes right after the arrival. Slighlty mineral. Then a note of lit matches. Then again some earth and a little bit chocolate.
    • Finish
      Amazingly long and intense. Mostly on tobacco,  chocolate. Extremely dry with a spicy aftertaste.
