 Pronounced Oloroso suggest fresh, untainted butts of outstanding quality; some apple juice dovetails with the grape. About the cleanest nose I have seen in a long time; Big malt delivery that perfectly and unexpectedly counters the sherry; at times gloriously bitter-sweet with the accent, rightly, being on the juicy barley; as near as damn-it perfect weight and then a tidal wave of spice. That excellent spice delivery rounds off the malty-sherry marriage beautifully. Wonderfully long and seductive with the finish remaining busy and balanced. Perhaps it is the voluptuousness of the body which works to best effect here: the mouth is filled with a just-so amount of oil to make the soft sherry, firmer oak and balancing sweet barley notes really harmonise. The label claims the sweetness comes from the sherry. It doesn't: the sherry (nose apart is dry, the barley sweetens. Even so, a huge leap in quality from the standard 10 and a thrilling reminder of just how good an excellent clean-sherry-influenced whisky can be. 95.5 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010
