    • Nose
      85 85
      Fairly shy with some bitterish caramel, cake crust, and something faintly chemical. Slightly floral, fudge and wood spices. I think we might find some improvement with water perhaps. So with water it is more expressive and definitely more pleasant. I get amaretto, caster sugar, it becomes fairly sweet, honey, pain aux raisins, and some oranges. It becomes rather lovely, though not the most complex of noses. Hints of lemon rasp, nutmeg and lemon sugar.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Acidic entry with some fudge, and some vegetal insinuations. Again, it does seems fairly timid. Maybe water can help. Oh yes, citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons, pastry and glazings. Fresh, although still reasonably bitter and acidic. Probably a bit too acidic, for my taste at least. Some chalk, minerals and heather honey.

      The finish is fresh, bitter and acidic (no surprise there).

    Edited after some time in an open bottle. A superstar!
    • Nose

      Dry, sherried, chocolate (semi-dark).
    • Taste
      92 92
      Rich and full. Definately sherried, but no monster. Oily, nutty, leather, moist raisins. Marzipan. Dark syrup. Honey.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, lingering, rich.

    Nose: At first, buttered ginger cake, freshly polished coffee tables, then comes the fruit and nut: dried apricots and raw almonds.

    Palate: Linseed and macadamia oil, toasted rye bread, ground coffee, 80% cocoa powder. Very slippery over the tongue.

    Finish: Dark chocolate gingers, a little raisiny at the end never gets to that sweet current finish one would assume but still an excellent sherry cask whisky. Ah grassy heathery note enters the fray.

    Without water the finish is almost infinite. I might not brush my teeth. Actually I should.
