Tasting Notes

Nose

Soft but chunky Oloroso with hints of black olives, cold tea, prunes, figs and cinder toffee. With time distinct aromas of spiced pipe tobacco and roasted Java coffee.

Palate

Dry and tannic but dark treacle balances. Hints of Java coffee, prune juice, raisin, herbal dried fruit, tobacco and burnt wood follow. The alcohol gives the palate piquancy.

Finish

Good length with lingering cold tea and burnt coffee grains. The combination of alcohol and tannins make it feel a tad austere.

Comment

So, no distillery character but a unique sherried dram.
