N: Wood, pepper, sweet chilli, coffee, nutty Werther’s toffees. Elegant honey malt, very Highlandesque with a touch of Skye, [Talikser DE] and an endearing touch of sulphur, Bowmore vibe.
T: Vibrant sherry with a sulphur hit, but its - pleasant! Bitter wood, peppery and honeyed. The sweet sherry develops further and sustains. Everything is working well with good pace.
F: Coffee caramel slowly cuts through the wood with some consistent freshness hanging around till the end, joined with some saline and dry smoke with the sulphur lingering around the palate until your next drink or meal.
C: Despite the sulphur throughout, its otherwise well blended and vibrant with a balanced cohesiveness - and if you can get past the sulphur its tasty.
