3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle mulled back from London and shared with Guy and Jackson at the shop. Pours like mud with some tan bubbles and gives off some sticky lacing. Nose is very molasses heavy with distinct honey sweetness, leather, brown sugar and stewed dark fruits. Loads of raisin sweetness and brown sugar in this with moderate smoke through the middle of the palate. It has a sweetness to it but that is mellowed out by a robust roastiness. Liquorice is quite prominent. Drinks superbly for 10+%. Solid in all aspects, just doesn’t blow me away
