EDINBURGH INDIE 'THE BOTTLERS' - PART IV

Benrinnes 1982 26yo 57,4% xx.11.1982/xx.05.2009, refill sherry butt#3229, The Bottlers

Colour: Deep Oloroso


Nose:
Sherry and fruity first, but then almost immediately a full hit of rubber hit the nose - like a pair of wellies - a giants size wellies, that is :-/


Taste:
More rubber and now also with a sulphury hit though water takes off the top notes of unpleasentries. I have also tried leaving the rest in the glass for a good 45mins, without any improvement.

I did not finish this dram out of respect for the next one to be had.
They say that 40% of the population is immune to different kinds of sulphury notes...guess I'm not! :-O HUGE dissapointment, this one!

58/100!
