Mouth: Very thick and resinous arrival on dark seasalt chocolate, coffee liquor and espresso. Blackberries, dark cherries, raisins soaked in PX. Cigar smoke. Spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and black pepper. Gets very meaty, with Hoisin sauce and grilled beef. Tangy and salty seaweed notes and hints of herbal peat in the long finish give away the islay heritage of this oakmonster.
Comments: A lovely dark sherry bomber with faint hints of the sea. If you sometimes enjoy get beaten over the head with a sherried baseball bat, you’re good to go. I am one of those masochists, it seems. /92
