|Robert Karlsson||Dominant sherry influence, yet very round. Mushrooms? Special, some sulphur perhaps but not of the disturbing kind. Very enjoyable nose. Superbly drinkable I'd say. On old-style round sherry influence, leather, cured meat, coffee. Beautiful, drinkable and complex. |
|Keith Wood||- Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Very dark treacle toffee.
- Nose: Honey and cream alongside a very rich and lightly toasted fruitiness (raisins, currants & cherries).
- Palate: Very big, very creamy and really very gentle. The light toast-iness leads into the finish.
- Finish: Medium to long and gently fading.
- Overall impression: Amazing contrast of big flavours and aromas alongside gentle creaminess. Very civilised. Did I say "Great"? I did now. |
