Paid: $95 for 750ml
Distilled / Owned by: Aberlour / Chivas Brothers
Aged For: NAS
Cask Type: Oloroso Sherry
Chill Filtered: No
Color Added: No
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Color: Rich Mahogany
Nose: Thick slices of fruit cake with extra raisins. Creamy sherry and liquid Christmas cookie.
Taste: Black cherry and ginger come first. Next oak and vanilla appear and a tease of orange.
Finish: Very Intense warmth (To be expected) anise, nutmeg, and cherry fall into a vanilla sherry pudding. Lovely.
Overall: All of my previous favorite flavors in scotch with the dial turned to 11 and then ripped it off. The definition of a sherry bomb. It’s scotch that took steroids to punch you in the face without needing peatey brass knuckles.
