Nose: single plantation Santo Domingo cocoa, draped by Demerara sugar, wafts around the barley and juicy dates with ease and elegance. Taste: A more overt sherry character by comparison to batch 1 on arrival and even forms the framework for the juicy mouth feel; those Demerara sugars intercede as promised. Finish: the finish doesn't work along the same creaseless lines and a degree of bitterness points accusingly at a sherry butt. Balance: the odd moment here hits high notes from the distillery I only ever experiences with the old 10-year-old some quarter of a century a go.
