Probably the lowest cost entry into a 50 year old single malt Whisky available from anywhere in the world, and this ex-refiil sherry cask aged malt is a really fantastic dram and my be old but is far from past it!

Tasting Notes:

Nose: You get a sense of the age with old library/book shop aromas or even a Sherry bodega warehouse, linseed oil, clarified butter, old leather, haylofts, tobacco box, cadied peel, some leafy smoke and forest floor notes.

Palate: A buttery-dried fruit/cakey delivery with old cigar box and tea chest wood, leafy and vegetal mid palate with some savoury smoke, beef tea or consomme soup. More old leather and sherry soaked sultana in here too.

Finish: Holding together well for its age, dry and savoury but with enough buttery dried fruit and spicy oak to see it through to an impressive end with notes of leafy/earthy chestnuts and subtle aromatic smoke.

Trying to decide which distillery this single malt actually comes from is part of the fun, great old fashioned Sherry cask aged malt which like an old Palo Cortado Sherry or Madeira still has plenty to offer after 50 years in cask.
