Tasting Notes

Nose

Germolene, whiteboard marker pens, tarry rope, and blackberries. Undiluted there is a light vegetal note that becomes silagey with water.

Palate

A lovely viscious texture at cask strength, with dark chocolate melting in pools of sweet, peaty butter.

Finish

Incessant phenols that cling till breakfast.

Comment

Old, intense and busting for an olifactory fight. Complex and grizzly, like Clint Eastwood in The Unforgiven.
