Member Ratings and Notes

 A/A-

Nose:  oatmeal, cereal grains, old wood

Palate: Sherry with just a touch of sweetness which gives good balance. More of those grainy, woody notes at the end of the palate.  Water brings out big fruit notes and some acid; it's like a totally different whisky, though just as good, if not better.

Finish:  Sherry on the nose, wood on the tongue.  Water brings the fruit and slight acid into the finish which gives a fantastic balance to the whole thing.

 

Really wonderful stuff. A/A-
