What a thing. But of course that does not come as a surprise, because Wemyss has knocked out some old Islay crackers in the direction of the last 2-3 years. This one can definitely keep up, although I would really like to have felt a few more percent more, and I also say that as a big friend of (higher) NCS who drinks anything up to 60% without water. NCS is it, so eigtl. You can not complain. The notes are typical of old sherry Bunnas, also reminiscent of the brilliant OA 25Y (the old with more percent).
Fine sherry wine on a mahogany table, calvados apples, autumn leaves, cinnamon, cloves, cranberries, expensive leather, hint of cigar smoke, dark honey in between
Wow, what a bitter force! Everything wrapped in 95% dark chocolate, cranberries over rack of lamb, wholemeal cereals with raspberries, cloves, cigar box, nutmeg, ingenious noble sea salt notes in between, suddenly becomes extremely drinkable after just a little salivation, no wonder at under 46%, almost 3-5% too little after the first 10 seconds.
Very long, cardamom, clove, a few cranberries, leather and a certain surprising creaminess remain on the tongue. Even after 10-15 minutes honey and light sea air remain in the mouth.
