Review #882

This is finished in PX Sherry casks (cask number #306529+31+33+35+44). Crisp green apples and fresh plums in the smell. Afterwards a touch of oak with hints of lemongrass.

Oily mouthfeel at first. Some spices and Sherry influence in the taste. The sweetness appears all of a sudden in the finish – very refreshing! A bit of spices and dried fruits stays behind as well.

This is not Sherry influenced in the Sherry-bomb-dried-fruits kind of way, but more subtle, with the spicy and pebery notes, alongside the sweetness from the PX Sherry and vanilla. A fantastic crisp dram! I willæ give this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
