A good example of a little seen distillery.
Berrys' Own Selection
Berry Bros. & Rudd
No age statement
Nose: Quite deep and hairy with a slightly charred, meaty edge. Into the earth again, this time with a sulphur edge. Medlar-like fruit with water.
Palate: Big, robust and mouthfilling. Long and quite deep with rooty, almost smoky notes.
Finish: Meaty again.
Comment: A good example of a little seen distillery.
Nose: Grassy. Cereal. Muesli. Dry hay. A slight sour note in the back. Fermenting pears.
Palate: Round, mouthcoating. Delightful feel. Rich fruity and oaky combination. Sweet. Plum and date chutney. Spicy (ginger).
Finish: Lingering, sweet and elegant.
Comment: An excellent whisky which has reached its peak. More time in oak and it would lose its charm.
