Color
Tawny
Nose

More expressive sherry nose than the 12 year old. Strong in oranges and some leather.

Taste

The classic sherry experience but with a thicker entry. Honey sweetness and oranges. Spiced but not burning. Very smooth and a little smoke.

Finish

Good sweet and spicy finish.

Comments

Sublime !

This whisky is the best buy/price and still the 18 and 21years old must come to more age stats in 2019 and 2022 before they go to real age again.

I didn't like it as much initially, but it oxidises pretty well.

Currently about 2 months into the bottle, will give update once it peaks.
I prefer refill oak because I'm against deforestation!

Ik vind deze 2015 bottle toch minder vol dan die ik in 2013 had. Zeker de neus en finish zijn wat minder.

Color
Tawny
Nose

Orange, cherry, caramel, citrus, cinnamon, malt and a little hazelnut. Not quite as aromatic as earlier batches that I've tried, it has some trouble loosening up.

Taste

Orange, prune, pepper, caramel and cinnamon. 

Finish

Orange, roasted chestnut, chocolate, cherry and caramel.

Comments

The theory is that the 2015 releases of the Revival are around 19 years old. But when I compared this one directly with versions from 2012, 2013 and 2014, I actually found this one the least impressive one, thinner in the mouth with a less dark profile. So even if the story about the age is true, there may be other factors making a difference: More refill rather than first fill? More Oloroso, less PX? It's still nice but it's not worth double the price of earlier batches, not at all.
