Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose:  Great nose:  dry sherry, sulphur, oiled wood

Palate:  Very dry, very woody, sherry, smoky in an almost peat like way at first, but then it reveals itself as sulphur, though not in an offensive way (which means a lot from me given how sulphur sensitive I am).  Water throws it out of balance, bringing out bitter notes.

Finish:  Chocolatey, sherry with smoke, finally some fruit, lasts forever.

 

Great stuff, very complex.
