Nose
Coffee. Shoe polish. Figs,prune and strawberry. Oily and resinous. Deep with an off-dry savoury sweetness. With water balsamic. Big and sherried but has promise.
Palate
Big and very bitter. Burning autumn bonfire. Chestnut,then the shoe polish returns. Water makes it even more grippy.
Finish
Bitter.
Comment
Overcooked.

Nose
Woody. Concentrated. Heady floral note. Hyacinth. Burnt caramel. Overcooked plum jam. A sour fruit note.
Palate
Sweet at first then the wood speaks up. Bitter chocolate,ground coffee beans.
Finish
The bitterness lingers and lingers.
Comment
An overaged malt which has the accent of an overaged bourbon ! You have got to have a taste for woody whiskies to like this one.
