( 58.9%, Gordon and MacPhail, Cask #5972, Refill Sherry Hoggie, 1993/2006 )
is so light and clear it is hard to think about this one being in Sherry cask at all, so I will take their word on it for now... comes off as a nice lemon gold color.
On my first NOSE
full (no I didn't pour it into my nose...... (yet)) It came off with nice straw and light fruits. Very pleasant floral notes. Almost reminds me of some crisp white wines on the nose. There is some oak and almost like some tree sap in there for me. I really do like the smell even if I cannot break it down that well.
OMGosh (not to copy willie) that comes to the PALATE
strong and very nice. Much larger burst of flavors comes out of this beverage that it leads on in the nose. The nose let me know that everything was nice and there was no harm... .then BANG.... Huge burst of spice, candy, cooked fruits,... wow...
Hmmm it does anesthetize the tongue a little bit... maybe needed a couple of drops of water (or more in the glass
At the FINISH
it is all staying in my mouth working it over letting me know it was there.
Very good beverage - many thanks Ryan for sharing. (this one might need a bottle)
