  • Intro:

    Distilled in 1998 by Glengoyne, this sherry cask offering was dumped after 19 years of aging in European oak sherry cask #1921 and bottled at cask strength without any coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Jammy and powerful on the nose. Cocoa, toffee, stewed fruits and oak are prominent. Some bite of ethanol.

  • Taste:

    Tart at first on the palate, before the ABV catches up. A bit of heat. Sulfur, cherry cordials, stewed fruits, currants, jam and some pepper. Medium mouth feel, tannins in check.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, dry and jammy. Pepper, tobacco, tannins and cocoa covered cherries is big here.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is dry for how sherried I expected it but…I’m into it. Excellent juxtaposition here that works well to give this an edge against being too heavily sherried.

  • Score:
