3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask. A.n interesting malt aroma with aniseed and pepper notes. Pours very dark almost black body and tan cream top. A taste that combines some soft fruits sweetness with roasted malts and licorice and quite a bitter languor. Thus fuller on the palate and the slightly acrid edge may deter some.
