    A blind taste Sample from @Whisky.Hedonist.MY. I think the sherry influence is just nice. On the nose i get those distinctive oxidative , nutty note from sherry wine.; but the oakiness not overpower.

    • Taste

      Sweet and oily mouthfeel. Quite enjoy the stickiness on the palate. Doesn't feel the tannin like dryness which often get from heavy oak influence whisky.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Treacle, toffee, and lots of dark chocolate. Sweet and sticky on the nose, and lots of wood as well. Dried red dates, with a slightly salty tang behind it.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Heavy sherry with a very prominent oakiness to it, maple syrup, lots of dried fruits, especially dried figs. Kind of singular.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Rather fresh, with lots of dried fruits, and tannin, and dark chocolate.
