Hinch 10 Year Old Sherry Cask Blended Irish Whiskey (700ml)
A combination of a minimum 10 year old Single Grain and Single Malt whiskeys from the distillery inventory, finished for a minimum of 12 months in thirty year old Oloroso Sherry casks from the Bodega Garvey in Jerez. 43% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, and soft buttery toffees, with herbal notes, pea pods, pepper, and mixed spices. A creamy palate of poached pear, white chocolate, toffee, jellied and jammy fruits, spices, and raisins, with spices vaulting above milk chocolate in later phases. A finish of milk chocolate, malt, and pear lead to a spice-coated tongue. 89 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick 2021
...So many memorable moments, but a little more care with these casks would have bought a lot more. Still, that's my blender's perfectionist hat on. Just enjoy it! 89 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2022
