Vanilla and fig jam from the Oloroso cask, malted rye and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Malts and dark chocolate.
Rich mouthfeel. Aroma has notes of vanilla, apricot and pears, caramel, licorice and light roasted coffee. Sweetness from rye and sherry cask blend in together. Fruity elements are balanced by the malted barley.
Long, it lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Spiciness of rye whiskey and fruitiness of the sherry stand out.
