General description

strong profile on the nose, sherry, well aged port, cherries, and a weird slightly off smell. not quite sure what it is, like a sulferous, burnt hair smell. in the mouth it's a rich, dark fruit affair! cherries, raspberries, strawberries, bitter almonds, and plum jam. with water, alot of bitterness comes through, very dry and oaky. the three casks definitely make a difference, but think its masking the actual spirit.

I visited the distillery in October 2018. the three wood is their 10 year Oak agreed another 18 months in the first sheet casks a and another 6 months in the Pedros. "it's about 12 years old."

also, no peat at all in any of this distillery's offerings

General description

Hint of tobacco on the nose with woodsy vanilla and orange creme.

Sherry comes in on the palate, rich fruitiness with cinnamon and citrus making a brief appearance.

Finish isn't as lasting as I would like; enough to keep a steady reminder that you need to go back for more.

General description

A solid mix of red fruit and spices ends with an iced tea-like dryness. An excellent intro into sherried whiskies.

Nose

Red grapes, plums, canned strawberries and notes that remind me of spicy pork flavored ramen noodles.

Palate

A red fruit basket with white peppers and chili peppers. Juicy plums, pecan nuts, blackberry, overripe strawberries and light liquor cherries.

Finish

Forest fruit flavored iced tea and dry oak.
