Tasting this one blind, I knew it was something sherry related just by looking at the color of the glass… but it really took me by surprise how good it was. Really Overeem whiskies always went under my radar because of their price.
“Old yet vibrant with floral aromas. A fantastic sherried whisky with a very drinkable bottling strength”
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (92): more than average. honey, floral, sulphur, wood, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa, candies.
Palate (92): powerful, oily. honey, candies, wood, spices, cinnamon, vanilla, citrus.
Finish (91): longer than average. honey, citrus, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Old Hobart Overeem Sherry Matured (Cask Strength) with 92 points over 100.
A fantastic whisky… but you will not see me drinking it. Just buy any A’bunadh and enjoy a nice night out with the family with the rest of money that you will save.
