Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/04/2016

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Sherry laced chocolate sponge cake, pastry, barley water, rum and raisin, toffee and butterscotch with faint dried apricot. Water releases golden syrup and spice.

Taste

Big sherry influence, barley water, raisin, resinous oak and brazil nut with cinnamon, black pepper and nutmeg spice. Takes water well, amplifying sherry and spice.

Aftertaste

Chocolate, raisin, fudge and tobacco leaf with lingering salty, spicy sherry.

Overall

Sherried and spicy, this huge malt is balanced and characterful.
