Nose

The alcohol is tickling the nose. more dirty notes so bacon, barbecue and pepper which is more than the sweet fruity sherry influence as you might know from Sherry Casks.

Taste

The taste is sweeter more like an apricot liquor but not giving the fruity palate. It is more sugar liquor with some pepper influence. Still dirty!

Finish

sweet and dry sherry finish with pepper and a bit oaky bitterness. Lovely!

Comments

For me this dram is a bit dryer and bitter than I would really love it. Nevertheless we have here a great dram which is very complex and giving a lot of dirty but also some dry fruity elements. Very well done!

With water: Not recommended as it kills the dram and not opening additional elements.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sugared almonds, chewy raisins and a touch of chilli chocolate.

Palate: Lots more chocolate here, with simmering spices alongside. It shows off its oak-y character here too.

Finish: Cinnamon spices persist.
