Tasting Notes
Ho-cheng YaoBrown, somewhat red, heavy sherry, malty, some sulfur, malty, quite Macallan. matured, strong. Quite nice Macallan, enjoyable!
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Rich glowing amber with hints of copper and bronze - Nose: Rich aged oak, a little furniture polish, figs, plums, dark cherries and oil of orange with just the slightest hint of cloves. It's also quite floral in a rich sherry kind of way. - Palate: Initially rich and creamy with slightly dry, but quite heavy sherry. Then comes the wood and fruit followed by that oily orange and hints of dark chocolate. What I can only describe as floral cloves take the lead into the finish. - Finish: Long, again with some development of orange and a leaning towards finest cognac right at the end. - Overall Impression: A very good whisky, obviously sherry cask(s) but with a floral lightness and complexity only associated with the very best casks.
