A very intense aroma that you would not expect at 11 years of age.
First there is a strong wood aroma.
The sherry remains discreetly in the background.
I can't even say with certainty whether it is fruity or spicy, the barrel itself dominates so much for me.
A first sip underlines my first positive impression. Creamy with a hint of mocha, coffee and caramel. Toffifee in my mind's eye.
Little fruit, a lot of wood.
A bit bitter over time.
But the overall impression remains very good.
A great malt ...
