Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/09/2009


(bottle number 415)


Sherry laced Christmas pudding/Dundee cake served with rum and raison ice cream.


This veritable pudding of a malt keeps on giving with bitter chocolate, praline, and treacle toffee.


The rich finish is appropriately dusted with bitter chocolate.
