Tasting Notes

Nose

Dense, yet sweet. Mix of coffee,dusty sherried notes. Sooty smoke. Goes deep into leaf mould,carbonised fruits,burnt sticks,then menthol.

Palate

Dry,firm tannic structure. There's residual sweetness here,the cask has had such huge influence. Tight even with water and a little too bitter for me.

Finish

Slightly astringent. Bitter chocolate.

Comment

Just too much cask influence for the sake of balance.
