Nose : Orange zest, spices, gravy browning. Classic A'Bunadh with a trace of sulphur. I've always liked this stuff.
Taste : More sulphur emerges on the palate, but its bearable. Lots of cinnamon and cardamom with underlying sugar.
Finish : Spiced rubber. The sulphur makes it a little bitter.
Comment : Not a clean batch, but still an enjoyable one
I am surprised that you picked up sulfur. The bottle that I have is quite sweet, creamy, lots of caramel, and fruit, and plenty of pleasant heat (no bitterness or sulfur). I have had other batches the last couple of years that I did taste sulfur, and bitterness (a funny aftertaste like new oak almost).
It makes me wonder if the Batches are so large now that there is a lot of variance within a batch number?
