"Matured in European and American Oak Oloroso sherry seasoned casks" according to the website. Hefty strength, should be a sherry bomb. Perhaps A'Bunadh territory?
1.7 (Burnt umber)
Yes, A'Bunadh territory indeed. Sharp, incredibly sherry heavy nose. Zesty, fruity and spicy rather than deep and raisin-y.
Peppery, tropical fruit explosion. Kiwi. Wine. Some ginger.
Coming in hot, but not over-powering. Dry, fading (after quite a while) on licorice and tea notes.
Powerful but in my opinion a little less complex than an average batch of its competitor Aberlour A'Bunadh. It's a sherried spearhead straight on, with a nose that seems to offer a bit more depth than the continuation.
