Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense oakiness. Cedar wood. Antique shop. Overcooked damson fruit jam. Dark chocolate. Vetiver root.

Palate

Bitter chocolate, bitter liquorice root, bitter raisins. There is a lot of elegancy\rand complexity. Reminiscent of very old cognacs.

Finish

Bitter and sweet. Not as lingering as expected. Dusty black pepper.

Comment

Difficult to evaluate these very old whiskies. This sherry cask retains complexity, charm and distinction.
