    A stunner of a dram. I absolutely love this.
    • Nose
      This is from an ex-oloroso cask, but you wouldn't guess it. Creamy caramel and vanilla, very smooth. Baked banana with a slight oakiness (wood shavings) as well. There's some waxiness as well, with lemons and oranges, as well as mango in the background. After some time in the glass it becomes more floral and a bit dusty. But all in all a fantastic nose!
    • Taste
      Very sweet, with some mocha and brown sugar. Then a hint of gingery bitterness, some lemon and coconut next to it. Some black pepper and licorice, with blackberry jam as well. Chewy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Sweet and smooth with some pepper. Lingers for a long time.
