Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: leather, Christmas cake, chocolate, warm ginger snaps from the oven and citrus airfreshner; nutty, molten brown sugar, candied fruits and mixed Christmas nuts.
Palate: big, rich and spicy, massively sherried; huge, brooding and drying nutty Oloroso sherry notes; firm leather, wet muddy leaf litter, more candied fruits in medium dark chocolate and tingling spices: cinnamon hearts, candied ginger and some clove just pulled out of honey baked ham.
Finish: long, leathery and very sherried; drying and nutty with fading Oloroso sherry, chocolate and spice.
Comment: bang for buck, if you want a lot of sherry and a high abv at a low price... this is your malt!
Distiller's Tasting Note:
Nose: Golden syrup. Orange and lemon. Pears. Walnuts. Ginger biscuits. Gets sweeter with time.
Palate: Marzipan, burnt sugar. Toasted malt loaf. Chestnuts. Polished leather. Vanilla flavoured tobacco.
Finish: Dry, with a developing spiciness.
