Bottle 386 of 472

Single Oloroso Sherry cask matured whisky from Taiwan, bottled at 57.8% ABV with neither chill filtration nor artificial colouring. Top stuff.

I tried to compare a sample of the Sherry Solist to the Sherry Oak, tasting both the same evening several hours apart (no drinks between).  I started enjoying the long lasting finish of the Sherry Soloist, which is one of the top three finishes I have ever tried. Trying another sip I appreciated the flavor more. Definite sherry bomb! For a final word, I would judge this as the better of the two.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Sherried oak and dried fruit – deep and brooding. Marzipan, nuts, dates, vanilla and spice.

Palate: More of the same, full and extremely impressive. More mixed dark spices develop with cocoa.

Finish: Condensed Sherried goodness.

Overall: Very impressive indeed.
