Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Intense malt with a unmistakable sherry richness. Quite firm, fruity and clean.
Palate: Sweet, quite lush start: malt, sherry and soft spice.
Finish: Lashings of toffee with bigger sherry than of old. Dark fudge sweetness gives way to much drier cocoa notes.
Comment: A bigger whisky than of a year or two back with the sherry making a much bigger impression. Quite fruity and full where once it was slightly powdery and over-dependent on the malt character alone.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Distinctly almondy. Some soft, perfumy, winey spiciness.
Palate: Toasted almonds, raisins, slightly burnt toffee.
Finish: Delicate, elusive, flavours. Long, soft, soothing.
Comment: All the woods are influential, especially the port in the finish. A very dexterous balancing act, but is the house character eventually overwhelmed?
