This double casked expression finished in Oloroso sherry casks from Dewars carries a hefty 21yr age statement and was released in 375ml formats - a welcome concept in the whiskey world!
Sweet cream, butter, rich red berries and some tobacco. Fig, cocoa, a bit of caramel. Enticing, to say the least.
Sweet on the palate, moderate to rich mouth feel. Prune, cream, caramel, oak and a lovely smack of red berries from the Oloroso. Smallest hint of pepper and ash, blends well.
Long finish. A bit of heat here, but the age, combination of old sherry notes and malt make for a great composition here.
I liked this much more than I expected and I'm beyond ecstatic about releases like this coming in half bottle sizes. For $50 or so, this is a welcome bottling and one that deserves to be experienced.
