Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense, winey and manure. Boiled sweet sherry and earthy, medicinal, tarry peat, liquorice, burnt wood, creosote, raisins, dark chocolate, green cashew nuts and almond. Wow!

Palate

Thick, unctuous and toasty with dark honey, taut, spicy, grainy oak and a dollop of treacly sherry. Oozing, tarry peat along with green nuts, raisinated fruit and bittering spices.\n

Finish

Dry and bitter with burnt wood and tannins but the treacle and molasses add sweetness to balance. Complex – peat smoke and medicinal herbs linger.\n

Comment

Mad, bad and dangerous to know!
