Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonThick oily attractive fruity nose here. Of exotic kind. Succulent is the word, I believe. Very round and drinkable. Excellent fruity concentration also in the taste, still retaining a fresh lively character. On eucalyptus. Quite lovely.
Rich Howardthe nose is filled with moderately dark fruits and berries; vaguely sangria-like but not that sweet: plums, pomegranate, cranberries (not too tart), blood oranges, hints of fresh pineapple, a very slight undercurrent of walnuts. the palate is moderately sweet with plums and hints of blueberry jam with that hint of walnuts on the finish. water adds a whiff of warm vanilla to the nose, a dash of malt powder, but doesn't begin to take away from all that lovely fruit. the palate is still smooth, sweet and balanced, with plenty of fruit. summary: very nice, a quality sherried malt. holds up well to scrutiny... ;) [tasted blind for the 2011 Awards]
