Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonDominant 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.
