Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/04/2016

Appearance

(Barrel #30087) Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma

Blackened fruit cake, matchbox lighting strip, coal dust, burnt raisins, prunes and dates with faint crushed mint and cracked black pepper. Water reveals old leather, espresso, brasil nuts and peacan pie.

Taste

Full-bodied. Sulphury matchbox lighting strip and black pepper spice with black strap molasses, vanilla, coal dust and sweet liquorice. Sweeter and altogether better balanced with a splash of water which also releases blackcurrant jam.

Aftertaste

Dry, charcoal, burnt raisin and liquorice with faint tobacco leaf (especially with water).

Overall

Blackened fruit cake, matchbox lighting strip, coal dust, burnt raisins and cracked black pepper spice typifies this sherried pot still whiskey with sweet balancing liquorice and blackcurrant jam released with water. A splash of water is essential to experience this whiskey at its best.
