    Sulphury nose.
    A kind of dirty sherry..I don't know, but it's simply not my cup of tea. There is some peat, I did not recognize very intensively the sherry, nor in the color or taste. Like a refill cask. Some white pepper, sherry, loud oak. That's it.

    • Nose
      Immediately a slight sulphur, musty, wood sap, slight earthy smoke, slight cocoa powder, and only a touch of peat. The HP character has been pretty successfully deducted from the equation. With time a little chocolate creeps in to save the day
    • Taste
      For the abv, it is pretty sippable. The palate is actually much better. Compact, simple, oak sappy. With water it gets even sweeter. No peat or some whatsoever.
    • Finish
      The oak sap - mentioned many times - is hanging around for a considerable amount of time, due to the high abv.
