|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Rich Teak
- Nose: Rubber plimsoles (gym shoes we used to wear for school sports), floating in an aged oak cask of sherry with dark fruits (currants, prunes & raisins) for company.
- Palate: Rich and nutty, currants marinated in marzipan liqueur and just a hint of those plimsoles.
- Finish: Long and rich, but where did those parma violets come from? (You know those hard little violet sweets from my childhood).
- With 5 drops of water: A more aggressive nose with a little more rubber. The palate also has a touch more rubber, but lots more wood.
- With 4 more drops of water: Once again the wood is intensified more, but the rubber not so much.
- Overall Impression: I really think this is suffering from Sulphur with that mixture of rubber and parma violets over the typical dark fruits and nuts. So I guess one has to imagine this as a slightly violet-tinged Christmas cake delivered in a rubber welly. |
