Our Tasting Notes
Appearance: Deep Mahogany. Long & slow oily legs
Nose: Heaps of rich and aromatic sherry is the first and obvious thing to hit you. And the other (and anticipated), usual suspects to arrive are heady antique furniture polish, chocolate-rich fondant, dark & sticky dates, fig rolls, juicy raisins, dark cherry jam. And way off in the distance is the faintest wiggle of a feinty and sulphurous element. This is an “ohh emm gee” nose-moment for the classic
Palate: Thick, rich and sweet with a spiced-sherry reduction. There’s an element of vanilla
thrown in for good measure. But then a bitter dryness appears out of nowhere and
shoulder-barges the sweetness out of the way. What’s happening? Now the faint
sulphurous tone detected on the nose jumps in and makes itself known, but it’s not too
strong and is at the level similar to another favourite cask from an earlier batch (#1020),
and it’s a friendly handshake. I’m starting to feel like the word “sulphur” & “Voldemort”
are both words that are taboo and must not be named. However, another sip and
that dryness does now appear to be getting a little overpowering. It’s no longer the
delicate, warming, and sweet whisky I had on the nose but more woody, tart and
dry. I’m a bit disappointed to be brutally honest.
Finish: Long with a flow from crisp and toffee-like sweetness that moves to a
bitter-bite and dryness with a feinty-head.
Water adds… More toffee, stewed fruits, custard on the nose. Increased wood,
pepper, and drying oakiness on the palate with a greater influence on the
dryness. The finish is still very long, but now with more astringency.
Conclusion: The nose was a total winner for me, and the prospect of another
stunning 1993 had me all revved up.
