The hardy one. You get that every now and then with these sherry casks. But this one is not really smelling very well.
Anyhow, there is obvious sherry notes to be found. For the rest there is hay, sulphate, and tons of caramel.
Very sweet. Caramel, molasses and cane sugar syrup. There is also the sulphate note as in the nose. It is not really nice though.
For the rest there are some sherry notes in the background.
Long finish. The sulphate notes are predominant. Not really nice. The finish is a bit drying. And there are some hay influences. At last it fades away with some tannins.
Don't know this was a given sample

Given this a NAS, I assume this has been a whisky which went the wrong way in the barrel. Therefor they have bottled it quickly and made it a NAS, so they could charge more then people would pay for a very young one.
These type of sherried whisky's seem to be coming up on the market more and more often. I don't like it. Somehow there is a change in sherried whisky's.
