...but there is not a lot to say. A young dram without any specifics (neither good nor bad). It is drinkable, no doubt - but why should I?
PS: I just read this should be a first fill sherry but - never ever!!! This is a mislabeling (most probably) because there is not a single whiff of sherry flavours in this dram.
The colour is pale straw and the nose offers a barley sugary and spring floral profile that smells still young but not immature. It is very simple (hey, what to expect from an 8-years old?) but without any flaw. The woods are still shy here.
The taste is like the nose - barley sugary sweet with floral impressions, but the woods are much stronger now. They add spices and bitter tannins, the later I find a little distracting. Very simple again, but okayish to drink.
The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with some peppery-drying moments (the woods, the woods). The finish is rather short and adds no new impressions. There is a minor drying moment towards the very end (tannins again). Water strengthens the bitter notes both in the nose and on the palate hence I prefer the neat dram.
