Nose: Big, creaking oak and sherry on the nose. Hints of soft smoke, black coffee and dates. Very inviting!
Palate: Rich palate entry. Notes of peppery oak and ground almond. Hints of pralines, dark chocolate and brandy butter. Very intense sherry notes. Spices develop.
Finish: Peppery, nutty finish. Spiced.
Overall: A hugely sherried, intense whisky - delicious.
