Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky captivates the eye with its golden-amber color, a radiant hue reflective of its dual maturation in both American oak and Amontillado sherry casks.
The olfactory landscape is a rich symphony of complexity. Intense aromas of dried fruits and toasted nuts combine with a subdued layer of sherry sweetness. A whisper of oak, dried herbs, and subtle spices reveals the whisky's well-managed aging process.
The first sip reveals a profoundly balanced profile. The sweetness of sherry leads the way, enriched by flavors of stewed apples, sultanas, and candied orange peel. Mid-palate, the presence of almond and hazelnut manifests, perfectly offset by a sprinkling of baking spices—cinnamon and nutmeg. The American oak's contribution of vanilla and caramel provides an exceptional undertone.
The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering warmth imbued with notes of dark chocolate, spice, and a trace of anise. The sherry's residual sweetness ensures a harmonious close to the journey.
In terms of texture, the whisky is rich yet not overpowering. It offers a medium body with a velvety, almost creamy mouthfeel, indicative of its balanced distillation and meticulous aging.
