  1. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very pleasant classical example of a sherry cask whisky. Too bad there is this sulphur, but a great drinker nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Light notes of sulphur, then an explosion of dried fruits, chocolate, toffee, classical sherry bomb.
    • Taste
      Much more concentrated and heavy than the nose would suggest, dried figs, plums, cherries, tobacco, leather, very meaty.
    • Finish
      Long, on dried fruits, chocolate and spices.

    Yet another top-notch sherry bomb from Cadenhead, this time bottled at a slightly younger age (compared to the recent 20+ year old Highland Park, Glenrothes etc), but from a distillery that produces spirit well-suited to a sherry cask. Again, the balance between the spirit and the sherry is spot on (Cadenhead really do know when to bottle casks at their peak!), with plenty of lightly floral and fruity notes from the spirit allowed to come through without being entirely masked by the rich, deep sherry. They must have been a first class sherry casks too, as the sherry notes are rich, creamy and fruity throughout (from nose to finish), but not overly cloying or drying. Lovely!Tasting notes from Cadenhead:

    Nose
    Brandy soaked raisins. Vanilla flavoured tobacco and prunes. Quite stunning on the nose.
    Palate
    Baked bananas and brown sugar. Light soya sauce and quite meaty.
    Lots of dark rich honey. The sherry cask is really in control here.
    Finish
    Creamy with rich sherry notes. Soft spice with honey and soft salty notes making a nice surprising appearance.
    The rich fruity notes linger right to the very end.
