Nose: wow - full of sweet sherry. Plum must, raisins and rum punch. a bit earthy fresh wood note, tobacco leaves, dark chocolate and coffee beans in the background. Despite the many dark notes in the core of the whisky, the sweet (PX?) Sherry always remains dominant.
Taste: Holds your nose! Very dark fruit berry compote, dates and sulfurized raisins, the oak needs a bit until it comes through and brings out a nice dark chocolate and strong coffee. The finish is then long with a spicy rum sweetness, a slightly sulphurous and fleshy woody notes and aromatic coffee / tobacco notes.
Okay, that's a sherry bomb. You have to like it but when you look at it the whisky is almost perfect. The alcohol and Brennereicharakter go into the sherry but completely.
