Braunstein, Library Collection 14:2, 46%

Review #664
This is bottled ??-09-2014. It is matured in Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks, and only 1000 bottles were made. Oak, caramel and red berries in the smell. Light peaty and heathery notes in the end.

Light peat and citrusy notes in the taste. Notes of dried fruits starts making an appearance. Not heavy dried fruits, just a little nice and sweet touch. The vanilla really joins in the finish alongside some fruity sugary sweetness from the dried fruits.

Some people don´t like the combination of Sherry and peat - luckily I do! Even those who don´t could probably deal with this, as it isn't a Sherry bomb - at all! In my opinion, the Sherry maturation should have been even longer! I will give this 83/100 (21/20/21/21).
