    Since my palate was possibly ruined by lychee I ate before tasting, the score may be raised by 1 or 2 points if I am happy to re-review this dram. One thing for sure: it was already proven good in the nosing section.

      Soft, gentle but with good depth in a fruity-spicy style. Stewed apple with cloves and star anise, and the spiciness was well ameliorated by the caramel sweetness. Used leather, Pu'er and light wood smoke. With water added, a little bit of wax, candied orange and toffee apple were presented.

      Soft arrival with a medium body. The palate was warmed up slowly with only a mild attack of peppers, and the acidity of wood and raw apple was lovely. Mild flavour of cinamon, vanilla, spiced orange and Earl Grey. The cacao bitterness was not irritating. Water unchained the mild paraffin aroma.

      Drying, with a med to long length. Dried ginger, soft cinnamon and fennel seed, chocolate beans and dark chocolate bitterness.

    The flavor is too old and does not match the age of the wine, reducing the intensity can improve the drinking experience.
    • Nose
      The first feeling is very frizzy, irritating, and smoky. I don’t know if it’s the barrel or the wine is relatively new. There is a bit of sourness from the sherry barrel in the almond chocolate sauce, which is similar to lemon zest. The style is still very OB, with spices , cinnamon, leather fabric, a pinch of wine.
      After adding water, come out to order coffee milk.
    • Taste
      The woodiness and bitterness caused by eating too much barrel, slightly sour fruit, slightly spicy spices, cocoa, fireworks, buckwheat tea, nuts.
      Sweetens with the addition of water, milk, and apples. . .
    • Finish
      Normal, Coffee, Oak.

    Sampled a dram at the distillery. Wonderfully sweet without being cloying. Great cask. Proof that age means nothing when it comes to quality. Had to buy two bottles.
