Around 50%, 18 years old, ex-bourbon with sherry cask participation. Distillery? ...
A tobermory! Who would have thought that. It is astonishing that after 22 years in Sherry Butt there is not so much left of it that it cannot be recognized as such without a doubt. Nevertheless (or because of that?) A very nice island malt from Tobermory. wlk 20-09
Moist forest floor, like after a heavy rain shower. Mold, damp wood, mushrooms. Provides a lot of flavor at the beginning, but also has hints of light fruits at the beginning, which become more concrete after a while and appear as apricots and oranges. Spicy wood, malt, marzipan, chocolate flakes. The nose has turned almost completely, almost completely away from the musty beginnings, towards a fruity-fresh and somewhat floating impression.
Almost mild start with strong notes of chocolate, coffee beans, almonds, marzipan. In addition, dried apricots and roasted orange slices as fruit components. Comes quite dry on the tongue, provides a lot of wood and with pepper, paprika powder, savory and nutmeg a lot of flavor. Vanilla and honey, sugar beet syrup, malt.
In the medium-long and very dry finish, it adds a little more flavor. Fading fruits, clear notes of chocolate.
