A remarkable nose, where a perfect balance between sherry and wood announces a marvelous whisky. On the background, some notes of smoke and a touch of fruits, but this hints are clearly dominated by the couple sherry oak. Despite this clear dominance, lots of subtlety and a marvelous complexity.
The mouth would even have been better without dilution, but it remains a very good whisky. Just like during the nosing, the association oak sherry dominates clearly the other aromas, but this whisky remains very subtle and complex.
The finish is on the same palette as the mouth and the nose, oak and sherry, subtle other hints. I dare not imagine this bottle at cask strength. It would have been nearly perfect.
