Color
Burnished
Nose

Dry fruit, ,raisins and pure chocolate, some signs of sulphur.

Taste

A bottle of good whisky: the sulphur kicks in. also burned matches, notes of cordite, it all dominate the rest.

Finish

Dry aftertaste, again high warmth, the sulphur, stays with the matches.

Comments

This is not my Cadenhead.

Nez bien mûr, beaucoup de chocolat au lait et de bois, un très léger voile de caoutchouc brûlé dans le fond.

La puissance alcoolique de la bouche est phénoménale, du chocolat, de la vanille. Le millieu et la longue finale apportent le boisé avec du poivre et des épices douces.

Un dram old school et viril bien dans le style Cadenhead.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Bitter chocolate, raisins, hot sand, carbide and turnips. Definite signs of sulphur.

Taste

A flash of super whisky before the sulphur kicks in and crushes it beneath cordite and spent matches. This is the kind of sulphur that seems to appeal to some folk.

Finish

High temperature and a bit harsh with more spent matches.

Comments

I suspect that some will love this. I prefer clean casks and so this loses points from me. A pity, because without the sulphur it could have been great.

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.

A shame about the sulphur, there is good whisky hiding underneath
