Yamazaki Sherry Cask bottled 2013

Nose: Now this is a sherry bomb that really lets itself go. Lots of bitter coffee overlaying prunes, drizzled with little nibs of fig. More espresso. Chocolate liqueur with a maraschino cherry. Decadent and heavily sherried, showing a surprising amount of the heavy and dark elements at what I think is fairly young.

Palate: Initially sweet sherry, almost on a dark and lightly bitter Spanish brandy. Juicy. The darker elements provide excellent balance. Strawberries and thick, drying (still plump) cherries. Then it's all to the browns. More chocolate liqueur laced with ground espresso bitters. A kiss of oak and very dark (99%) cocoa.

Finish: A really fine mix of the fruit, sweet, bitter, and dark flavors. Truly a classic and unabashed sherry profile, more on the lines of an old glory than a young babe, but it's got youthful spirit. Extremely graceful, yet bitter and less sweet than a number of its coevals. Excellent.

Nose: Starts Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Then some serious coffee notes and dark chocolate come in. I have one word for you : PRUNES! , fruit compot with lots of prunes giving it that dark, sweet deep aroma. It reminds me of my Grandmother's fruit ‘Kompot’ (a desserts made from boiling all sorts of dried fruit : Prunes,Sultanas, raisins with lots of sugar and spice, then served cold. I once had the pleasure of eating this dish in one of Israel’s top restaurants with some Champagne Sorbet on top. yumm.) but let’s get back to the nose , shall we? So we have Prune Kompot, Spice, Cinnamon. the works. Shabbat desert at the Jewish Shteitl.

Palate: Prunes attack here as well. The chocolate follows , then enters the sultanas, spices and burnt sugary finish. mouth coating, thick, viscous, powerful stuff. Yumm. This is a sherry done right. period.

Finish: Long finish, starting on dark chocolate, ending on prunes (sweet) and some Espresso notes (bitter). Bitter-sweet symphony.

yea. mucho mucho prunolic ;)

Enjoying this wonderful whisky right now and I can only agree with your review. A bitter-sweet symphony and surely one of the best!
