Looks like a sherry bomb sitting in the glass.
Bursting with strong flavours, dark fruits, vanilla, cherry ice lolly, red roses, stewed fruits, hints of dark chocolate and coconut.
I agree with Peatbogger, nosing this you would think it was a bourbon but this is single malt Texas style and that's what I was hoping for.
With a little bit I had left in the glass I added a few drops of water and it just brought out more of the vanilla.
Chewy and creamy and at 50% very drinkable.
Again the strong flavours squeeze your taste buds.
Tangy and zesty with lots of great spice.
With water it tastes bitter, so it spoils it.
The finish is long and mouth coating with dark plum crumble on the death.
With water it is more woody and the plum crumble has gone.
