Henrik Johansson

Date of tasting: 26/07 2008
Apperance: Burnished, deep copper
Nose: Warm sherried nose with some prickle. Some wood associated aromas along with cocoa and a feint spiciness, milk chocolate and some almonds. Yet there's a fresh, solvent element behind all that and strokes of ethyl alcohol which I did not expect in a whisky this old. With water the sherry gives more room to some pine nut hints, nutmeg and red berries.
Body: Medium
Palate: The overall impact feels drier than I expected. It starts soft with a spicy tingle, the sherry comes rolling in towards the middle. The finish is very long and quite mouth drying with some smoky hints rolling in just towards the end, might have been more sulphury than smoky, but the dram left a very light impression of ! tobacco ash.

The second tasting rediscovered a wonderful whisky, slightly dominated by sherry, but revealing an unusual complexity of smells and tastes. A real pleasure.
The finish is long and develops on sherry notes.

A rather sweet nose (sweet in the sense of not aggressive, not in the sense of sugared) with a presence of sherry on a discrete smoky background.
The same sweetness in the palate where the very complex taste develops form sherry to chocolate through a slight woody taste.
The finish is long, an and a slight woody aftertaste mixed with sherry hints crowns the whole. A very nice bottle.

Hints of sherry mixed with some discrete woody notes are followed by some subtle fruity notes.
In the palate, some very pleasant impressions of sherry, nice but discrete fruity ones and nice slightly bitter notes (walnut). Pleasant whisky, not really complex but without clear flaws. A kind of watery impression too. It would probably gained from a slightly higher percentage of alcohol.
The finish is long and fresh. Memories of sherry clearly dominate.

The nose is marked by a discrete wood bitterness, with some smoke on the background. Dry fruits and some malt together with some tinglings.
The palate is pleasantly bitter, with nice slightly acid hints and a nice complexity, going from smoke to exotic fruits through nutty touches.
A very nice finish too, marked by both chocolate and slightly acid notes and a kind of acidity.

The nose detects the sherry immediately. A very pleasant smell.
The taste is very nice as well, and reveals hints of chocolate, wood of tobacco.
A wonderful finish prolongs the pleasure for many minutes.
