    Thanks to chrisyeo for the sample.

      Strong sherry notes initially, then it faded into more dark chocolate and slightly grassy. Kind of fruity and minty as well. A little bit of acidic notes, slightly sour, and vanilla.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet and sour, some nice vanilla, kind of acidic with that sharp citrusy.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Nutty, sourish, vanilla, medium long finish.

    Taste - sweet sweet , oily taste , little spice
    Finish - medium finish, not spectacular, GlenGoyne Chapter 2 seems to have stronger finish

    • Nose
      88 88
      Great ripe apples, spicy old sherry, caramel, some vanilla cream, fresh tobacco, lots of chocolate, some sawdust. Slightly boiled down fruits, somewhat musty woodworking, mocha, with light citrus notes, candy apple and dry-sweet wood (liquorice?).

      An unbelievably good balance of tart-spicy 'old' sherry notes and fruity-fresh aromas, as well as a great wood influence.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pleasantly spicy, juicy ripe apple (green and red), light citrus notes, tart, dry chocolate, spices. The spicy 'old' sherry notes appear again. The wood is noticeable through delicately spicy and slightly tart notes. Tart lemon peel, delicately musty.

      Here too: dignified and very well balanced.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Somewhat dry, steeply flattened, quite tart. The fruity notes evaporate quickly, leaving a delicate, tart wood note with just a hint of unripe fruit.
