Tipperary 8 yo (2008), Cask RC00117 Red Wine Finish, 59,5%

Review #584
A single cask selected by Tipperary, which is finished in red wine casks. Marzipan and red berries in the smell. The oak is noticeable and some raisins and nuts comes forward. Flavourful, but mild to the nose, considering that it is almost 60%!

Deep dark berries in the taste. Blackcurrant and prunes. Vanilla and oak joins in, but just on the side without interfering. The finish is just full of dried fruits with fruity sweetness on the side. Oh, and it stays for quite a long time.

Is this only 8 years old? And is this only a finish? This is a great dram from start to finish. Normally I am not too fond of red wine maturation, but this brings out the best elements of this type of maturation. I will give this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
