General description

I suspect many people try the 16 after loving the Abunadh and be disappointed. 16 is not nearly as intense or sherry-bomb, leading with milder cherry, more of vanilla anf honey palate. 40% abv does not help in intensity compared to Abunadh's 60.8, which is more expensive. However, taken on its own, this is a smooth, malty 16 year old with bit of bourbon sweetness and bit of sherry undertone, certainly unique among 40-43% abv crowd.

hardcore sherry

full sherry nose, dark berries, raisins, melon, maybe Banane.

creamy but with pungent alcohol for 43%. Juice orange, dried plums and mildly roasted oak. Some sips later spices coming up, like cinnamon and nutmeg.

medium finish with milk chocolate and hazelnuts, then the oak coming up and taking over.
