Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonFeels sulphury at first nosing, rounds off with time. Oven-baked oranges. Big big nose. Really wins with time and a dash of water. Really tasteful total sherry influence. Big and bold, with the spent matches far in the aftertaste and not disturbing. Quite the experience.
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Dark treacle toffee with a hint of copper - Nose: Oooh something quite different or perhaps unusual here ... rich and fruity but also something intensely herbal. I'm reminded of a soft drink from the UK called Dandelion & Burdock. - Palate: I can say no other than the nose personnified with great emphasis on the intense herbal-ness. - Finish: Long, very long, very intense and a nice lightly peppery tingle. - Overall impression: Very rich, very herbal, truly excellent.
