Nose
?Meaty, with gravy browning, some steamed green veg, bitter dark chocolate covered German gingerbread and black pepper. Blimey…
Palate
?Sweet, but devilishly spicy, like an apple pie where someone over did the cinnamon and cloves. The dark chocolate bitterness returns and this is very bold complex and masculine
Finish
?Tobacco leaf, more dark chocolate and spice round out a heavyweight whisky.
Comment
?If this was a Bond movie, it would be Quantum Of Solace. Very manly, a little brutal in places but bloody difficult to understand.

Rob Allanson

Nose
?Roast meats, a scented soap note develops, spring greens steaming, chocolated coated ginger, black pepper popcorn and red liquorice laces.
Palate
?The sweetness is quickly replaced with a huge spice explosion, chilli chocolate, dark chocolate truffles, apple strudel (heavy on the Chantilly cream please).
Finish
?Sweet and spicy, just keeps going.
Comment
?Leaves the tastebuds bruised but wanting more.
