    Chris

    The nose is as one expected. A big, nutty, coffee laced, mature sherry monster with a slight leafiness. Quite linear, but for a sherry cask this old it has a lovely freshness and an earthy complexity of toffee, walnuts and associated wood notes. The palate is dry, woody and so tannic it’s unbelievable. The tannins are a bit on the green side and it feels like one has been licking the inside of the cask. Funnily enough there’s not much distillery character or even spirit character present. With water it becomes slightly sugary, but that’s about it. Impressive if you like this sort of whisky and at around £750-£800, you’ve really got to like woody old sherried malts!
