- ABV 40%
This bottling, from the world's oldest licensed distillery (1608), is matured in three types of oak casks: American Bourbon barrels (which typically lend vanilla notes to the whiskey), Spanish Oloroso Sherry Casks,(contributing rich fruit and nuts). Finally it is transferred to old port casks for the last few months of its maturation. These casks bring sweet berry notes and a hint of ruby red to the final whiskey.
Tasting note: Nose: Big, fat and sweet. Butter and raisins. Forms slowly with pineapple, stewed fruits, malted milk, coconut, cereal, cocoa, orange. Big (but balanced) oak. Palate: Round and rich. Sweet dried fruits, brazil nut, coffee, soft malt, popcorn. Good grip. Oak in balance. Finish: Long. Hazelnut. Comment: Plenty of oak but the spirit holds its own. An extra dimension to the 10 Year Old. 40% Alc./Vol. Rating: 80

Other reviews... Nose: a touch of sulphur detracts somewhat from the fresh fruit delivery. Still get pomegranates, though! Taste: seismic waves of spicy fruit, juicy and salivating in effect; Finish: that haunting of poor sherry just takes the edge off the fun... Rating: 88
