    An unusual Japanese sherry cask that is sulphur. It still has lots of merit. It needs thinking about unless you have tolerance for sulphur.
    • Nose
      Roast beef with gravy browning. Vaguely fruity but rather submerged in the sulphur. Slightly cough syrupy. Water seems to lift the sulphur a bit.
    • Taste
      Chocolatey arrival with plenty of coffee and cocoa. Plenty of sugars coming through. Unfortunately water brings the sulphur out on the palate and flattens it.
    • Finish
      Here comes the sweetness. Long and sugary but still the sulphur is a bit of a problem. Shorter and flatter with water.
