A vatting of five casks, this bottling pays tribute to the first distillery to obtain an official licence in 1824, whose single malt is highly renowned throughout the world. On an aromatic front, the way it expresses the best of the sherry cask maturation, and on a flavour front, the tact with which it momentarily hands over to malted barley before leaving to conquer particularly fertile Andalusian lands with even more lyricism are moments of pure pleasure.
Profile: the rich initial nose sees sherry leave its fruity (apricot) and honeyed (lime blossom) signature on the aromatic palette. Well-balanced, it develops into salted butter caramel and plants (verbena). Bursting with fruit (orange, peach, date), the attack is particularly subtle. The mid-palate is then honeyed (lavender) and juicy (Mirabelle plum). The end of palate is spicy (cinnamon, ginger), vanilla and floral (lily, iris).
