From the Distributer:
Cinco is Spanish for the number five. For Cinco we have used a number of barrels that previously matured five different styles of sherry. The five varieties are Oloroso, Fino, Pedro Ximénez, Amontillado and Palo Cortado.
Colour: Swarthy Golden Amber
Nose: Whoa! This is nice. Must be the best “sherry nose” from High Coast so far – or indeed from any Swedish distillery. Deep and vibrant sherry notes, dried fruits galore. Also coffee and dark chocolate. Warm and comforting nose. A baseline of orchard fruits and mild spices. With time memories of white sugar sprinkled on the deep woods of northern Sweden. Even more time reveals more deep, earthy notes in the form of cinnamon stick, nutmeg and cocoa nibs. Looove the nose!
Palate: This is a whisky that makes itself known from the get-go. Rich and bold in style. Spices and sugary notes up front. Then a wave of dried fruits, cinnamon and nuts. There is medium long finish with a deeper sweetness and fizzy ginger and cinnamon notes.
