Oloroso Emperatriz Eugenia
I’ve been drinking whisky, including sherried whiskies for over 20 years but i’ve never really had sherry on it’s own other than a wee glass of Oloroso at a Highland Park tasting.
As part of the Sherrynotes (@sherrynotes) www.sherrynotes.com #SherryTT twitter tasting this Oloroso was the third Sherry of the evening.
Very familiar due to the use of oloroso casks in whisky, very nutty and still a little too tarte on the palate for me, remember i don’t really drink wine at all. Not for me on the palate although this is the first one i could really drink a decent amount of.
Thanks to Sherrynotes (@sherrynotes) www.sherrynotes.com for including me on this tasting.
nutty, woody, leathery, sealing wax, less salty, quite meaty in nature, quite earthy, after a bit in the glass more caramel/ toffee pennies
Still a little on the tarte side for me, goes very nutty, crushed mixed nuts and biscuity
sweeter on the finish than i was expecting, nuttier and the longest finish so far
