The arrival on the palate is slow to begin with then BANG! Big delivery of dried fruit followed with what tastes like a handful of Fisherman's friend lozenges, with eucalyptus and liquorice on the aftertaste. Press your tongue tight against the roof of your mouth to get the full benefit of the intense spiciness that lies within.
This stuff needs a splash of water and a bit of time to open up. Revisit after ten minutes, and it's a different beast altogether, malty and quite dry. Not too long on the aftertaste and leaves you with a drouth that cries out for a beer to chase it down.
I bought a litre of this at the airport two months ago and I'm halfway through. A good value for money dram.
