Nose
Dark, deep, full and fungal with balsamic notes, some treacle and a dense cocoa nib effect alongside dried fruits, tar, dubbin and plum jam.
Palate
Again balsamic, but sweet with a whiff of mothballs, then fruit paste. Best neat. Dying embers and drying blood.
Finish
Black cherry. Bitter.
Comment
Big cask influence on a pretty light whisky. Interesting, but only for sherry nuts.

Rob Allanson

89
Nose
Heavy brown sugar, treacle, warmed cinnamon, a subtle coal tar note, dark stewed fruits and amber rosin.
Palate
Sweet at first then tomato paste. Something slightly smoky about this as well, tomato stalks and earth.
Finish
Long, sweet and juicy.
Comment
Wonderful stuff for a late night fireside chat with friends.
