Nose: an old-fashioned, sopping-with-oloroso nose, resplendent in orange peel and molasses. Taste: voluptuous and curvy in all the right places, hard not to be turned on by a delivery like this. Being pedantic, the sherry is slightly OTT and two decades ago I would have marked this down as being a little too gushing in grape. But such is the rarity of finding un-ruined sherry butts at work, one is easily tempted to turn a blind eye and just enjoy this soaking-moist fruitcake moment. Finish: slightly bitter as the ancient tannins begin to dig in. Balance: a beautiful sherry-matured malt from the pre-cock up sulphur days. Not a single off note and a reminder of what a sherry cask malt meant to those of us who were involved in whisky a quarter of a century ago. 48%.
