André 83%
Raspberries, cherries, apricots, pears and pear syrup, honey. Very attractive this fruity nose with the sweet inviting texture. The sherry cask is discreet, but the dried berries are definitely present in the mouth; apple pie, raspberries, fruit salad syrup, distant smoke and warehouse notes of moist earth, honey, pear syrup, creamy vanilla. Final a bit short on the astringency of dry oak wood and vanilla.

Patrick 82%
An intense whiskey, but whose balance is not extraordinary. Nose: Moist cereals, some fresh wood and herbs. Palate: Burnt wood, herbs. Intense. Finale: Of a beautiful length, marked by the burned wood.

Martin 89.5%
Nose: cooked green apples, vanilla and cream. Red grapes, dates and prunes. Viny oak and nutmeg. Orange and cocoa. Palate: Raisins and spices, apples and oranges, hot spices and toffee. Tobacco and latte coffee. Final: Superb retro-olfaction. Barley, smoke, caramel, spices and dark chocolate. Balance: An excellent single cask, but like many old single casks, mostly from independent bottlers, a tad out of my price range.
