n: cocoa powder, vanilla frosting, and Luxardo cherries. Very dense and syrupy with a measure of clove cigarettes (Djarum Blacks - goth days) and vanilla chai. Fantastic nose really.
t: initial is semi-sweet cherry chocolates with vanilla cream filling. The sherry cask oak and some bitter flavour of cloves shows in the middle. This whisky follows the nose exactly with a soothing dry finish of oak and black tea. This is a great sherry bomb, slightly one dimensional, but it does this really well and maturely and the ABV makes it a fantastic value.
