    Nose: chocolate, cocoa, molasses, burned sugar, light rum notes, a bit "dirty" - earthy, mineral, Scherry looks set Taste: strong sherry influence, dark sweetness, oak, chocolate Finish: long, sherry, dark sweetness, some oak, blackberry jam with water: softer, semen, drier wood, sweeter in the taste Conclusion: not my cup of tea, the sherry is set up, this is in total somehow inharmonious. nevertheless at least interesting and therefore - 86 points

    This is not for everyone. A very salty malt in th ebest coastal style but without any peat. I absolutely love this, but I agree that this speciality may either be the right choice for nervous freaks or an absolute nogo for smooth and polished tastes. This saltiness is unique and the cask is a very special one that brings the inchgower idea to shine. Love it or hate it.

    That's not mine. The nose is still halfway to please, but at least on the palate goes down with me the flap.

      At first a bit of sulphate, which quickly dissipates. Then a good portion of forest soil and light smoke from the stove. Overall quite meaty and with a metallic-cold impact.
    • Taste
      Amazingly bitter, bitter chocolate, but sometimes without embedding in the same. Very salty and with a peppery spice.
    • Finish
      Again salty, but now rather soft
