Oloroso Puncheon / 59.1%
Appearance: Dark Polished maple wood. Lazy & thin oily legs.
Nose: Stewed fruit, hot caramel sauce, milk chocolate, and Flambéed banana dance around the glass. A hint of pear drop (acetone) appears alongside some cherry cola. Held in the glass for a little longer, the sherry grows and a far-off whiff of strawberry ice cream appears.
Palate: Big sherried sweetness with a drying chili-tingle are there from the off. Warmth carries the sherry through perfectly and delivers notes of fruit’n’nut chocolate and juicy raisins. A little oakiness arrives on the tongue.
Finish: Long and warming. Sweetness coats the mouth with a hint of almond.
Conclusion: Big and powerful that forces you to go back for a second performance.
An absolutely balanced sherry bomb that sherry fans are sure to love!

This is one of the most well balanced sherried whiskeys I have tried in a long time. Perfect balance of sherry and fruit, not overly sweet but the sherry hits right upfront. I can sit and nose this for hours. The real issue is how quickly I can kill a bottle...sooo glad I bought 2. Highly recommend!
This is a treat you do not want to miss.

This offering is just outstanding! The palate and finish are just as the description says. Reminds me of the the great Glendronach 21 bottles but with a higher ABV kick to it that adds even more flavor. After my first sip I was just gushing over how much I liked it. Warm and full mouth feel of dried fruits and a pleasing lingering finish to it that you would expect from a good bottle. You could nose this all day with some caramel and sweet fruits. This is just a fantastic, special bottle and well worth a pick up.
