General description

Dry, old sherry and maybe somewhat closed and a bit one dimensional at first, but that changes quickly. Half a teaspoon of water and an inviting nose of sweet, ripe red fruits march to the front, accompanied by  grainy and salty tones 

Taste

sweet and soft, dry at first, red fruit, butterscotch, nuts, some salt. Add water and the dry arrival vanishes to make room for a rich and round complexity, with sweet spices along the way.

Finish

rather long and pleasant: oily (nut oil), mouth coating. with the added water the saltiness is more prominent (although still mild and polite) with the nuts and spices at the end. on the front of the tong a bit of a sharp alcohol note hangs about.

Comments

Such a rich, round and pleasant whisky. The first impression of dry old sherry is merely a disguise for all the good things it has to offer. Beautiful whisky! 87 points
