    Exciting part. The nose is rather a bit lukewarm, but it shares in the mouth neat and delivers intense aromas. The highlight is the long finish. However, the significant nitric could not be anything anyone can do. (Neat) Water helps to noticeably integrate the very heavy alcohol and opens it a bit. But remains a masculine power package. Reminds a little of Longrow.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet red fruits (berry compote / rum pot), caramel, a very tiny hint of smoke in the background, malty, quite striking, not particularly deep.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Full, sweet, powerful, earthy. Then comes rich peppery notes. Hot spices (cloves, cinnamon, piement). Full power, even the alk is clearly noticeable. Again the red rum pot fruits, fudge, nutty and old wet rags. Something is burning.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Intense, currant leaves, tar, undergrowth, nutty, clearly saltpetre. Very long and persistent. Ends with cocoa and dark chocolate. Nice length.
