- Grape jam, chocolate covered cherries, cocoa, biscuits, tree resin, cigar, sulfur. Very lively and bright!
intense alcohol, sherry, floral, dark chocolate
dry sherry, powerful, tingling on throat,
medium long finish with lots of sherry everywhere.
- Wow, not a light one, plucked from the cask at the right moment .
An oily opening. Start of ; dried fruit,sultana pricked with mint and a beeswax element. Notes of chestnut nougat and chocolate. Thick dried fruits. Complex.
An overpowering impact of alcohol-laden, dense flavour . Chewy and supple tannins with a slight astringency. Dense and briary instead, with some coffee grounds.
Rich, long, walnuts and raisins.
- pretty strong with its more than 65%, but also edible without water. With a bit of water, it becomes fruity. Very nice :)

N: Similar to the ‘Dark-side’ Tulli WB, which has fast become a solid reference for big=dark youthful sherry numbers such as this. Accompanying usual suspects include leather, creamy raisins,… you know, its a young Rothes.
T: Sweet sherry, burned butterscotch, leather ‘boing’ - really over done [oloroso] actually, even by Rothes standards.
F: More sherry boing.
C: At the limits of reason but the Tulli deals with those limits far better.Scores a C
