N: Nutty sherry notes with leather, slightly sulphury notes on the margins. Deep dried fruit, figs, a bit pruney, a moment of Kiwi shoe polish; lightly waxy with a touch of molasses.

 

P: Very thick with some heat. Strong sherry influence with leather; dances around with white pepper in abundance and a bit of cinnamon. Lively. Wall-to-wall figs, slight nuttiness, earthy rancio.

 

F: Nice and cool initially but the heat picks up. Profound but nice sherry influence; nutty, chewy and leathery with figs and a little molasses as well as Fuji apples and citrus. Goes waxier with time.

 

Nice super-sherried malt. A bit anonymous, but fun.

Nose:  Fairly sulphured sherry.  A bit of rust.

 

Palate:  Lots of sulphur, very umami notes with mushrooms and earthy notes. Very dry.

 

Finish: Matchsticks.

 

A big sulphur bomb.  Not my favorite profile but not badly done.
