Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Caramalised apples with cinnamon crunch, Dime bars, ploughed earth. Sort of an oily edge, wax or leather jackets. Riding boots. Roast pineapple and sweet chilli.
Palate: Bitter oak up front with that caramalised apple. Then runny honey before the oak spices take grip. Powdered giner and nutmeg.
Finish: Long with ginger.
Comment: Has aged well and retained a certain freshness to it. A sherried delight.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Obvious sherry influence. Walnut stain. Peppery. Dark chocolate.Marasquino cherry. Liquorice. Touch of humus.
Palate: Crisp and slightly harsh. Oak prevails, hence a grippy sensation. Beeswax.Chocolate with brandied cherry.
Finish: Dry and astringent.
Comment: The sherry dominates on the oaky side. Too much for me but if you like woody corpulent whiskies, this one is for you.
