    • Nose
      Chocolate, dried figs, chocolate, stewed cherries, orange zest oil. It
      has almost a bourbony-coffee quality here. It's dark, and even figgier,
      and spiced, dark fruit cake. It's rich as heck, dense, and easy to keep
      nosing for hours on end.
    • Taste
      Intense, dark, and heavy. It's a sherry bomb, but anything but cloying
      or sweet. More on coffee here than chocolate. Spice, cloves, anise,
      leather (polished), burned fruit. FIGS. Raisins, prunes, and dried
    • Finish
      Coffee, chocolate, and, you guessed it, figs. Prunes, raisins, burnt dry
      fruit cake. High quality orange-leather varnish. Powerful and effing

    • Nose
      Very much like spring time and heather, vanilla, dried fruits, sherry
    • Taste
      malty, thick and creamy, cask strength so tone it down with some water to taste. little smoke, some cocoa and bread pudding
    • Finish
      long finish, very enjoyable, some fresh fruits and alot of malt and cakes.

    This was a interesting find. I went in to th local Bev Mo and was looking for a 40yr and it was out and this had a tag for it, however was out. So I went and asked the MGR to scan for any bottles in the region and she found one left about 50 miles away and said she would be glad to have it brought up for me and walaa Part of the collection and a nice one to start with. Thanks to Sylvia and the Enc. team at Bev Mo!!
