Review #900 (2022)

This is matured in a mix of American and European Oloroso Sherry casks. A fresh and vibrant smell, yet with hints of oak and oak spices. A nice layer of dried fruits as well.

Loads of spices in the taste. A great mix of honey, dried fruits and some citrusy notes behind the spices. You sit back with a great finish full of spices and oak in the background.

For me, this is a fantastic step between the 12 year old and the 18 year old! It is much more spicy than the 12 year old, but haven’t yet gotten the heavy Sherry/dried fruit influence yet, as the 18 year old. Just a solid and great whisky! I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
