Nose
Sherried. Deep earthiness. Damson jam. Dates,treacle. Fig syrup.
Palate
Sweet and concentrated. Dark dry fruit (prunes,sultanas,dates) like alsacian Christmas cakes. Wood shows off at mid-palate.Bitter note.
Finish
Sweet and bitter. Dark chocolate.
Comment
The type of maturation has deeply influenced the malt. Elegant and rich but may be a bit too much… like Xmas pudding!
