Deep polished gold.
Baked peaches with honey and toasted almonds. Sherry cask charring and subtle spice.
Waxy and coating with warmth of crystallised ginger and sweetness of crème brulee and caramelised brown sugar. Water uncovers floral notes, macadamia nuts and Seville orange marmalade.
Hazelnuts and nougat mingle with lightly toasted brioche and toffee apples.

- Geproefd op:
- Light, slightly sweet, fruity (pears, green melon), vanilla, buttery and light wooden notes, a bit grassy, hint of barley
- Spicy (peppers, ginger), slightly sweet, oatmeal, some mineral and coastal notes, wet stones, freshly sawn wood
- Dry, warm, spices, raw mushrooms, malty and salty notes
- Quite good whisky, feels much younger than 18 yo. Although it declared as ex-sherry, you can barely feel (and see due to its very pale colour) sherry profile. So probably it was matured in ex-ex-ex-ex…-sherry casks. However, it’s quite balanced, pleasant and easy-going with obvious coastal influence.
