Tasting Notes

Nose

Raw, intense, gritty, herbal Oloroso. Earth, manure with hints of walnuts, chicory and coffee. Water brings out a touch of prune, dried plum and orange, as well as softening the rawness.

Palate

Surprisingly soft, well, relatively so! Like the nose it is Oloroso dominated, lightly tannic and herbal with a touch of treacle and malt. Water brings out some coffee/caramel notes. \n

Finish

Quite herbal – mint and heather with plenty of drying, coffeed tannins. \n

Comment

A good, clean sherry matured malt.
