Mars Komagatake Single Cask Vintage 1988 Sherry Cask
Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Mars Komagatake Single Cask Vintage 1988 sherry cask #566. 46 percent alcohol.
Nose: Sherry, match heads, preserved plums, honey, toffee, medium oak, thickened cream, oats.
Palate: Toasty. Match heads, honey, banana leaf, dry sherry, toffee, candied nuts, nutmeg.
Finish: Short-medium on dry sherry. Matchheads, toffee, honey. Flinty.
General comment: This reminds me of Highland park 12/18 or Glenfarclas 21. Not really my style of sherried whisky but nothing particularly off either.
