Nose: rum raisins. Slight sulfur, somehow involved. Deep and heavy. Mint makes it easier again. Short alcohol approach after panning. Then leather comes to light. Roasting aromas are spreading. Now coffee. In the background is still moist tobacco for self-turner. The raisins are still there. Dried plums are added. Chocolate.
After the first sip: raisins and mint chocolate. Caramel behind. Toffee.
Taste: Immediately marzipan, the sulfur is to taste, from the beginning slightly bitter, sourish bread dough, fermented grapes, almonds, spices, nutmeg.
Finish: Pepper, still slightly bitter spices, sulphured dried fruit (raisins and figs). Gunpowder, slightly sour on the tongue, pepper and spices still stick to the cheeks.
Conclusion: My first Malt where I really taste a lot of marzipan. By sulfur and bitterness probably not for everyone, but I think it's great. I would have liked to try it in cask strength.
