Nose
Glowing mahogany. Rich and sweet, malt loaf studded with moist raisin. A hint of sulphur giving some lift. Bitter orange peel. Layered.
Palate
Treacle toffee melting across the tongue. Light grip,whiff of cigar smoke Chewy. Equally good with water,coffee,light chestnut mushroom. Elegant.
Finish
Long,silky touch of smoke.
Comment
A generously proportioned beauty.

Nose
Sherried. Flowering currant. Walnut stain. Coffee grounds. The sharpness of oak is soothed by sweet notes of dried fruit.
Palate
Sweet then bitter. The same two-step dance as on the nose. Sherry weights on the aromatic profile.
Finish
Lingering,spicy,bitter. Dark chocolate.
Comment
The distillery character is dominated by the sherry one. And the high strength makes it even more blatant. A drop of water eases it a little.
