This has also been drawn from a rare Spanish oak, ex-Sherry hogshead.A lovely amber colour - inviting and almost sparkling bright like an Amontillado sherry. Very good beading indicates great mouth viscosity. A light prickle with dried fruits and spice; moist fruitcake, toasted almonds; allspice; key-note wax tucked well in the background. A rich, oily mouthfeel; sweet and spicy taste and a thread of scented smoke in the long finish. More obviously waxy with water, with herbal, dry moorland scents and a trace of butterscotch. The taste still mouthfilling; still sweet and spicy (and warming), but drier and with some hessian or canvas in the aftertaste, suggesting an older whisky.Remarkable and very unusual.
