Signatory Vintage - Cask Strength Collection handpicked by Acla
Refill Sherry Hogshead
Cask no. 4250
Despite the high volume percentages of 59.6%, the aroma is very mild with nutty and floral notes. Milk chocolate, honey and oranges. Very complex. Very soft and harmonious in the mouth. Starts with a nice malt sweetness, oranges and milk chocolate again. Then goes into a delicate and subtle dryness from the Oloroso barrel. Absolutely not bitter or sulphurous. Spices and fine herbs in the background. The addition of a little water promotes the rather dark sherry notes without overpowering them. The finish is long, spicy, creamy and nutty.
