Nose: Rich gingersnaps filled with brandy cream. Some elements of leather shoe polish and a hint of natural liquorice.\n

Comment: Caught at the right time, this maintains a balance of distillery character, \ncask spices and oily richness. Very good whisky making indeed.
Nose: An overload of dense, saturated, coffeed, first fill Oloroso. Raw but soft with walnut, prune, raisin, green nuts and astringent sour fruit and herbal notes. A \ntouch of spice adds a little warmth.
Palate: Luscious and juicy treacle coated sherried fruit with hints of French coffee and gentle spices. Straightforward but deep. \n
Finish: Medium length with a very coffeed and tartly herbal finish. \n
Comment: A sherry monster and a half. Completely blemish free but a sherry monster nevertheless.
