    A drop of water seems to add age, just the smallest drop holds back the spice and brings out notes of old sherry casks.
    Adding water really makes a world of difference.
    • Nose
      Peppery aroma quickly backed up with caramelized sugar on a creme brulee. Blood oranges and orange bitters ready for the old fashioned. The nose is rich with a gentle smokiness hovering, also the faintest touch of sulphur. No doubt this is a classic Oloroso cask.
      After water theres leather, a touch of tobacco and even some mushrooms.
    • Taste
      The arrival is spicy and punchy, no loss of life and vigor in this dram. Lots of red berries and autumn fruits. Again backed up with spice, black pepper and even some Sichuan pepper. Slight oakiness, old oak which has that bitter sour taste growing.
      After water the palate comes into balance, cherries, some vanilla style sweetness, imagine a fancy coca cola.
    • Finish
      Finish is all dark roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and a slap of charred oak still smoking away. Long and slightly drying.
