Tasting notes Ruben Luyten - WhiskyNotes: Score 91/100

Nose: oh man, luscious sherry. Plenty of red plums, raspberries and juicy cherries. Actual old Oloroso. Tobacco leaves and hints of old leather bags in the background. Whiffs of molasses and thick Demerara rums. Subtle foresty notes, candied ginger and orange peel too. Just a hint of lit matches but very much in the background, it could be cask char as well.

Mouth: dark, with a charred character indeed. Pipe tobacco and leather again. Mid-palate it gets slightly eerie, with an armagnac-like fruitiness of Seville oranges, kumquats and red berries. At the same time there are hints of cloves, a series of herbal potions and heavily infused teas, as well as teak oil and pine resin. Some tannins alright.

Finish: long and dry, with a pleasant raspberry sourness, sappy oak and liquorice.

A very polished sherry bomb, with a pleasant, juicy fruitiness. The cask influence is prominent but I really like this old rancio character. With just 83 bottles, you may need to use your elbows to get hold of it. And your Visa Platinum.
