Nose
Dried figs.
Palate
Figgy.
Finish
Minty. Warming, soothing. Late bitterness.
Comment
This mahogany dram looks like a winter warmer, and that is how I would use it.

Dave Broom

70
Nose
A dense, nutty, heavily sherried nose with touches of chocolate and, in time, a fungal and mulch note.
Palate
Dense again: figgy, chocolate cake, dried Pedro Ximinez/muscatel. Some sulphur. Tannic.
Finish
Tarry.
Comment
A beast of a dram. Another case of Longmorn versus wood which has been won by the latter.
