Ichiro's Malt Four of Diamonds 2000 11-year-old


Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:
Ichiro's Malt Four of Diamonds 2000 11-year-old Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cask Finished 56.9%
Nose: Blood oranges, raisins, burnt toast, forest floor, menthol with some trailing struck match.
Palate: Mixed peel. menthol, blood oranges, a slight soapyness, cloves. A little dry oak and struck match.
Finish: Short-medium on mixed peel, dry oak, forest floor and again the trailing struck match.
Seems a little immature/unresolved. In my experience, sherry cask finished Ichiro's Malts are the least successful.
