General description

One of the more complex noses I've experienced, full of bitter chocolate and sherry and black fruits. The dark aromas give way to a slightly lighter taste, more oak, malt and fruit, and an even lighter, but long finish. In a way the taste doesn't quite deliver on what the nose promises, but it is still a delicious sherried dram. To my slight surprise, it is quite drinkable at full 60.8% ABV, and preferable too.

Nose

Dark chocolate, sherry, oak, dried fruits, black cherry, malt, fresh peat, spices, vanilla

Palate

Oak, spices, black grapes, malt, sherry, oil, red apples, treacle

Finish

Sherry, oak, malt, blackberry
