Old Deer:
On the nose the sherry barrel comes thru with fruity sweetness, honey notes, Christmas spices gentle grapes and orange. The palate is really expressive and at the same time pleasantly gentle. The sweetness is enhanced by malty notes with a floral touch. The finish is long leathery with residual tobacco aromas, and a hint of vanilla at the very end.

Old Bear:
The maturation in high-quality red wine barrels brings ecstasy to the nose. The smoked barley malt used comes into play intertwined with some light floral flavors, and a certain oriental spice. On the palate you get a lot of smoke, ashes and some sweetness, which reminded me of candy bars at the fair. A beautiful wood note rounds off the taste. The finish is nice and long, the smoke becomes gentler and the aromas clearer.


Glencadam 22 yo

After a full 22 years in cask, this Glencadam is still at a huge 53.3%. This is a great dram from Berry Brothers & Rudd.
