This is one of our favourite Sherry Casks to date. At 47% it is a powerful and raw spirit; dried fruits and spice climb straight out of your glass. After a minuet of rest and a gentle swirl the sweet Stone fruits, plum, toffee, golden syrup dumplings and Christmas cake notes are now present. The first sip is a little sharp but not unpleasant; sweet on the front, mellowed spices on the back of the pallet with hints of marzipan and white pepper. A little dry on the palette with a medium to long finish. A wonderful mouth fill and some enticing earthy richness right on the end.
A drop or two of water and you will have the pleasure of enjoying this Whisky across multiple levels.
