2012 Cask Strength Batch 3 59.6%

ABV: 58.5
Bottle size: 70
In stock

Dist: 2012 Btl: 2022
Tasted: Mar 2023
The nose displays a good balance of barley character, vanilla and herbal sherry. Slightly mentholated with prune, coffee and some slightly gritty tannins. Although quite alcoholic it’s very well contained, Late wood char notes.

The palate is a little drying and tannic to begin with coffee, dark chocolate, dark raisinated fruit, prune, walnut and tar. There is quite a noticeable smoky peat character, and the sherry casks are more dominant than the nose would suggest. Masked, spicy, tarry, herbal finish.

A drop of water pens the nose well. Succulent and juicy with less herbal notes but now a touch of peat and tar. The palate is equally as soft with a better balance as the sherry influence is dialled down a bit to allow barley and vanilla to show. Still smoky and coffee’d with a long, herbal tannin finish.
