Nose
Another sherry bomb,this time with big roasted notes. Mocha and slight meatiness. Bitter cacao. Barbeque,dry timber,struck match.
Palate
Big sulphur character. Meaty with some liquorice and walnut. Has presence and a firm grip. With water it stretches into bitter peels.
Finish
Tight and slightly smoky.
Comment
Big and tannic. Would add structure to a blend.

Nose
Woody. An unpleasant rubbery note (warm tyre). Grippy oak. Damp wood. Earthy. Moss. Hint of treacle and burnt sugar. Walnut stain. Dark chocolate.
Palate
Wood has the power. Hard to taste anything else than oak. Bitter with a sweet touch. Maybe a taste of cocoa powder.
Finish
Dry,bitter. Musty.
Comment
If you look for balance and layers of flavours,this whisky is not for you. Nor for me !
