Review #864 (2022)

This is matured in 1st fill Madeira wood and is a limited edition consisting of casks #54-57. Only 789 bottles were made. Intense Madeira influenced nose. Expecting a sweet one here! Dried fruits with hints of nuts and oak.

Definitely a sweet one! But it’s way more than that. Dried fruits, oak, acids and caramel in the taste. The oak and dried fruits stays for quite a while in the finish. Otherwise, not much new happens here…

I could imagine that people that are sulfur sensitive, will find it in this one. Luckily, that’s not me! It’s very flavourful, and I really enjoyed it, but expect a dram where the cask has overpowered most of the whisky DNA. I will give this 86/100 (22/22/21/21).
