What a dram. I have rarely had so much chocolate on the palate, and the smoked weft provides magnificent complexity.
We're here on a big chunk. And yet despite the 60% we feel great finesse.
Lots of varnished wood, a touch of solvent. Vanilla.
Yellow and red fruits. Apricot, gooseberry jam, toasted almonds.
Pepper, nutmeg, bark. Slight smoke.
In the mouth the dram takes another direction.
An orgy of chocolate. Cocoa, black, powder. Candied orangette.
Always lots of spices. Pepper, nutmeg.
Roasted almonds, salted butter caramel.
Leather, animal, fat, light barbecue. Wood.
Long finish on cocoa, leather, grison on the barbecue.
Light peat and still a nice smoke. Chocolate orangette. Fresh cherry that stays forever.
