Nose: On first whiff I got some Vinegar (balsamic) notes which were weird to me. On second whiff, the Sherried elements rise : Raisins, Prunes, Hints of Chocolate and toffee. All very appetizing, besides the vinegar notes. Oliver from the whisky rating blog, explains this as acetaldehyde which is not uncommon in heavily sherried malts.

Palate: Quite a thick and viscous body. Lovely mélange of Coffee, Dark chocolate, dried fruit (as the nose suggests) and treacle. Some spice as well. Very very good sherried profile. After I tool a few sips, I couldn’t resist and filled an extra portion form my sample into the glass. I couldn’t stop. Harmonious stuff!

Finish: Medium-Long, dominated by Espresso, and dark chocolate, with a hint of spice.

This sounds intriguing. The balsamic vinegar reference is something I’ve not come across before and I’m not sure what to make of it, however, the rest of review has me sold. Added to my wish list.
