Great malt that is clearly dominated by the barrel for me. Very sherry lastig. You have to like it. Definitely needs time and some water.
Dark fruits, sherry flavors pure. Slight adhesive note, plus a cooling fresh mint note. Forest honey, oranges, figs, raisins, everything present. Everything very close together. Certain spicy notes still come through discreetly. With a little water, add some red apple and the cooling mint increases. On top of it still wonderful Christmas spices. Great nose !!
Dark fruits, orange, are paramount. Slight note of marzipan. Some spices. Otherwise dark, heavy. It takes time. The first was a little too much water. Then everything blurs and the aromas blur. Luckily I had 2 samples. At about 50% it's perfect for me. Everything very harmonious and well integrated. It leaves dark chocolate, a few tart notes, plum compote and cherries. Tastes really good, but dominated by me to sherry.
Medium length finish, slight bitterness, coffee, dark chocolate. Some of marzipan, cinnamon, cloves remains. Drying.
