    [March, 2018]  It is "children's night" tonight so I will have another underaged dram that I bought out of curiosity for 82 Euro in December, 2015 (still I do not understand why I spent that much money for a "paedophilic" dram...).  

    The colour is amontillad and the texture shows many little tears that consolidate after a while and run with medium fast legs.  The nose - urrggh - is all about sweaty socks and shoes, this is a stinkfoot experience par excellence!  I am not sure why others like this profile but to me this is disgusting.  The mouthfeel is warming and coating with quite some peppery moments.  The taste is better than the nose but still not that good that I ask for a second dram.  It is sherry winey sweet and just a little cheesy with peppers, chilli and other spices at the end.  The finish is medium long and adds more cheesy flavours.  Some water really improves the dram (two points up) as it reduces the (to my taste buds disgusting) sweaty-cheesy flavours both in the nose and during the finish.  Nevertheless, I still do not go for another shot.  

    A clear recommendation to all that adore cheese in liquid form or that like the smell of a crowded men's gym.  Unfortunately, I do not like both so another 82 Euro go down the drain...
