This is a 10 year IB from Tamdhu that is bottled at cask strength and matured full term in a first fill sherry butt.
Toffee, caramel, some sherry funk and heavy, sweet cream.
Its spicy at first and then the sweets roll in. Thick vanilla, toffee, caramel, sherry and some wood funk. Its delicious and it's like dessert in a dram. Its dangerous, too. It drinks no where near 60%.
Long and complex. Mild ethanol in the finish but accompanied with lots more sweet and sherry funk. I like the funk. I'm glad it sticks around.
There's so many $50 bottles I've bought I wish I could exchange for another of these. The flavor here is incredible, and that toffee sherry character is so fascinating.
