    Continuation of the blind tasting 18th of 24 drams. So far the best dram and surely one that I would buy. It reminds me a bit on the Glenlivet Sherry Butts of Signatory Vintage this year but the nose seems to be even sweeter than these I had. I guess we have a 20 year old 58% Sherry Cask (maybe even PX) dram from the Speyside which is a very balanced and enjoyable sherry dram.
    Wow 64% that is nothing that I would have expected. Well implemented alcohol!
    • Nose
      A lot of sherry sweetness, milk chocolate  and plums. 
    • Taste
      dry tobacco, milk chocolate and plums again. 
    • Finish
      Cocoa powder, milk chocolate and a bit of tobacco. Very long and very enjoyable

    Oh yes, I like it really well indeed. Not boring at all or sherry overpowered, everything fits so well. Only the departure should leave a little more impression, well, and the alcohol a bit better involved, but that is whining at a high level. From the start, it starts very soft, sweet and full, then the alcohol rumbles in and then it dries completely and is actually gone quickly.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    OK, with 63.9% I did not expect now, the alcohol could definitely not be better integrated!
    • Nose
      The color is inbetween Sherry and Brown Sherry. Sherry influence immediately on the glass, then immediately greener, apples and meadow herbs. After life very full and sweet with many candied fruits, but also sulfur, in a positive sense. When moving a bit fresher, plus tobacco and wood, plums marinated in strong wine, but also medicinal notes, a peculiar mixture of acidic disinfectant, furniture polish and fruit flavors, soon pretends to be smoke. The note is incredibly stable in the still glass. Warms up fuller, more wood.
    • Taste
      Rich, almost resinous, but very strong with tons of chocolate, softwood honey and pine oil and many roasted aromas. However, he is never too sweet, developed back menthol and clearly harsh echoes of the oak. Everything is there, sweet, sour, sour, beautifully interwoven.
    • Finish
      In the finish, he dries off, then goes with harsh occupancy of the oral cavity relatively quickly, overall, you would say medium-long.

    IMHO very alcoholic and quite one-dimensional. With water a little better but does not quite keep what the color and age promise ... unfortunately.
