Strange thing is the nose was really nice?
First off there is cigar smoke, old tanned leather, old leather books, old leather arm chairs, well you get the picture :)
A little peat but also rock pool smells which surprise me, brine, hints of orange, ginger, and then out of nowhere some meaty notes emerge, like cold beef and finally some chocolate wafer,
A refined, elegant nose, just lovely, but ever so slightly shy otherwise it would be 95 points.
Oh no what is this, its a little bitter and flat as a fart where is all the elegant flavour the nose promised?
No It is thin on the palate, air has definitely got to this but there is enough spice/pepper and peat left but it is almost dead mid palate, the oak has basically almost destroyed everything else
The finish is actually decent with the peat coming through and a little sherry.
