This is a release from Signatory Vintages UCF line. It is a 10yr Edradour that has been fully matured in First Fill sherry casks (type unknown)
Sherry, pepper, tobacco, sweet stewed fruits. Honey, figs, dates, grapes and raspberries. Butter cream and vanilla. Interesting meatiness to it, with lots of melon character.
Medium, sweet honey. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, faint sulfur. Faint cocoa. Delicious overall, sherry and base spirit blend nicely.
Short, faintly astringent. Some pepper, nice sherry sweetness but also some bitterness.
Overall, I really enjoyed this up until the finish which was too short, and a bit bitter / plasticy for my tastes. Would love to see if that wrinkle is worked out at cask strength, but this isn't too bad at all.
