With the heavenly aroma we found ourselves in an old fashioned dunnage warehouse in Scotland smelling a very rare old vintage (añada) Amontillado Sherry – celestial! On the palate dry and full-bodied, one panellist called it ‘massaging your tongue’, with walnut and toasted hazelnut husk and hints of butterscotch. Water brought out fresh oranges and bergamot oil before raisins and shaved toasted almonds took centre stage. To taste like a ‘rye witch’ cocktail using rye whiskey, Palo Cortado Sherry, orange bitters, demerara sugar and Italian Strega (meaning witch) herbal liqueur. At thirteen years of age we combined two 2nd fill bourbon barrels, originally filled on the same day, into a 1st fill PX butt.
Cask: First-fill Pedro Ximenez butt Age: 15 years Date distilled: September 2004 Alcohol: 59.4% USA allocation: 120 bottles
