Nose

würzig-holzig, aber kein frisches Sägemehl, kein uralter, dunkler Schrank, eher so medium-Hartholz, mit etwas Zimt, Pfeffer, trocken, aromatisch... mit Wasser saftiger, fruchtig, Dosenpfirsich, Mirabelle, Orangenmarmelade, immer noch Zimt, ein Hauch Ingwer

Taste

würzig-holzig wie die Nase - passt, vielleicht etwas dunkler, schärfer, die Früchte eher getrocknet als Marmelade, dazu dunkle Schokolade... und da ist später noch was dunkel-herb-süßes hinten auf der Zunge, so zwischen Melasse und Lakritz, mit dunklen Beeren

Finish

mittel bis lang, warm, würzig-trocken mit Kakao und 'ner leichten, herben Fruchtigkeit... Brombeere oder Blutorange?

Comments

Leckere Sache, mit 170€ auch fast in Reichweite meines Portemonnaies, fühlt sich aber eher nach 15-20 Jahren an, und so findet man wohl in der 100€-Klasse (oder gar etwas drunter) ähnlich gutes Zeug.

The sherry comes out strong and with it the typical aroma of dried fruits. A lot of sweetness, I'm thinking of apples and prunes that have been lying on the ground for awhile. Mellow oak lingers in the background. (With water: Hints of freshly cut oranges.)

Taste

Spicy at first, you can tell this was bottled at cask strength. Not too strong though as it's oily and velvety in the mouth. Many fruity notes again, notably sweet strawberries. It has something creamy... strawberry and vanilla milkshake? (Having rested in the glass a little longer, with water: Definitely oranges now. Strikes a nice balance with the soft taste of oak.)

Finish

Best described as long-lasting sweetness. More oak later as the mouth gets dry.

Comments

Fine example of a sherried cask strength whisky. It might seem heavy on the sweet side at first, but it certainly gains from letting it rest in the glass for some minutes. The careful addition of water tamed the prominent sweetness and brought pleasant citrus notes to light.
