Nose
Molasses and treacle on baking paper. Redcurrant jelly and cranberries in chocolate. With water, manuka honey and leather school satchels.
Palate
Very grippy like dark chocolate with high cocoa content. A drying texture like walnut skins, ground mace and hazelnuts with little sweetness.
Finish
Quite drawing and dry with a long finish.
Comment
This begs for water, so add carefully. A wonderful nose.

Nose
Young and obviously sherry matured. Very smoky with huge dollops of treacle toffee, walnut shell, earthy spices and grippy tannins. Dilution emphasises the herbal notes.
Palate
Like the nose it is all about the Oloroso cask. Spotlessly clean but pretty one-dimensional. It's all drying wood tannins and alcohol when neat.
Finish
Mouth-watering and alcoholic with a leafy, herbal finish.
Comment
A young, sherry matured whisky. If you are looking for complexity and nuance then I'd pass on this.
