10 year old Speyside 64.7% vol
1 of only 592 bottles from refill sherry cask 900828
Deep amber with copper lights; very little beading.
Drawn from a First fill Spanish oak Sherry butt.
A mellow and tannic-dry nose-feel, but quite closed to start with. After a while it opens to a burnt brown sugar top note on a base of ‘dusty desk drawer’ with traces of rose-scented furniture polish, giving way to dried raisins in a waxed wrapping.
Teeth coating texture and a taste of dry Oloroso sherry, with a suggestion of cordite in the finish. Water brings up brandy butter, stem ginger and tablet; the taste is now sweeter, less tannic and mouth cooling (star anise); the cordite becomes matchbox striker in the finish.
