WHISKY TASTING NOTES

Nose: A rich and complex series of aromas, dominated by sweet coffee flavours and earthy hints of juniper & brine.
Palate: At full strength sherry notes dominate the palate, at first sweet but then the Islay character coming through; charred meats and rich stewed fruits fight their way to the forefront. Oily and full-bodied, without the prickle that might be expected at cask strength.
Finish: The finish is surprisingly long, the peat still aggressive with notes reminiscent of burnt rubber, brandy and sticky toffee pudding. A complex dram, not for the faint-hearted!
