Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Bright amber - Nose: Sausage on a stick over a bonfire on the beach with some tyres thrown in. - Palate: Peat, smoked ham, hints of cherries and blackberries, slightly salty. - Finish: Long, smoky and slightly fruity. - Overall: The sherry is well noticeable and is taming the rough distillery character a little. Quite smooth on the palate despite the 48% and not as medicinal as the 10 yo.
