Tasting Notes

Nose

Taut, herbal, spicy and coffeed aromas which display an almost astringent rye-like character. Quite youthful and edgy with a touch of vanilla softening.

Palate

As taut and herbal as the nose! A veritable mouthful of first fill Oloroso – dark treacle, chocolate and rather drying combination of alcohol and tannins. Ooh this is a bit of a brute! \n

Finish

Intense and mouth-watering with a smoky and spicy finish.

Comment

A very clean, unblemished, herbal sherry monster. Completely lacking in subtlety for me, but this style of whisky has \nits adherents!
