Rich and robust, spiced Oloroso sherry fruits plenty of raisins served in a metallic copper bowl indicating both heavy sherry influence but good retention of pot still whisky character. 86/100
Really quite special and an education to my Irish whiskey palate. This has all the subtleties of scotch single malt and has been married masterfully using the best qualities of each of the cask maturations involved. 86/100.
A nice integration of the sherry cask finish, well balanced but still quite light-bodied this has a gentle diversity and is incredibly smooth – a great sipping whisky! 84/100.
An unusual mixture of whisky and cider flavours that I quite enjoyed, reminiscent of Calvados in some ways and some of the more rustic Normandy ciders we have sampled. 85/100.

My favourite of the whole tasting, and not just due to its exclusivity. This one really appealed to my inner chocoholic and love of sherry maturation done well! Definitely one to savour.
