4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cask, hand-pull at WHOAF 2015. It pours jet black with a tiny, bubbly tan head. The nose is so rich, sweet, oily, stewed dark fruits, fruit cake, eccles cake, vanilla, cherry bakewell, sweet roast, juicy whisky, heather honey and light smoked peat. The taste is slick, oily, unctuous, warming alcohol, eccles cake, earthy roast, charred wood, Neapolitan ice-cream, liquorice, rich roast, mocha, stewed strawberries, umami, rocky road, burnt toast and a touch of peppery spice with a dry, warming finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Slick mouth-feel. Staggeringly brilliant, great depth and yet somehow highly drinkability. Perfect for a whisky and beer lover. Exceptional.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-12-03. Viscous black body, near headless. 3+ Strong flavour of alcohol and whiskey is a bit off-putting. Nice malty base but the alcohol and whiskey really dominates the flavour profile. Aroma is similar, alcohol, whiskey, light barrel notes. 6+ Smooth medium bodied is accompanied by a mild alcohol burn throughout. Solid, its a bit disappointing. Shows potential but ends up being too rough for me to handle. Cask at Cole’s, Buffalo

[3501-20101203] Cask. Roasted wooden chocolate aroma. Black body with quick off-white bubbles. Boozy bandaid whiskey flavour has wood roast and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Full body is quite boozy. Wow, interesting, and surprisingly drinkable.
