Color: This is dark... Suspiciously dark. Dark amber, buckwheat honey dark with a reddish mahogany hue and quick but thick and very oily looking legs.
Nose: Orange marmalade, damp basement carpet and rum raisin ice cream. Blueberry juice, lightly brewed black tea and tannins. Used book shop and touch of sulphur.
Palate: Nice creamy, sweet and fruity entry: Golden raisins, plum preserve and sweetened grape juice. Although a little thin in texture it's packed with sherry cask influenced flavors... Pipe tobacco, fig paste and cinnamon sugar. Brandy soaked malt. Is this actually a real thing..? Marzipan and candied orange peels.
Finish: Medium to long with black tea, grape skins and cacao powder.
Overall: It is a pretty generic sherry matured/finished whisky and I agree with others that there is nothing unique to find to put you in awe but I cannot imagine anyone complaining about this bottle as well. Especially after paying $80 only... If you see one get one, seriously... Thanks to Koray Kaan Özdemir a.k.a. Whisky Monster for the sample.
