Ohishi 11 year old Sherry Cask-Finished, 41%

Price: $100 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




The nose has plum flesh, sanded oak, allspice, and walnut shells, but it's a little undemonstrative. The redemption comes with tasting. Here, lush sherry notes wash over the tongue in waves as it shows dark fruits, plum wine, toffee, fresh fig, sultana, tobacco leaf, walnut, and orange peel. Don't overlook this whisky; just take a quick sniff, then luxuriate in the fine sherry cask flavors on your taste buds. (888 bottles)
