Very chocolate nose. Sherry. Green apple. The chocolate is more subdued on the palate, with deep drid fruits, raisins. Very rich, syrupy, and enveloping. Very much what you'd expect for this pedigree and style. Great stuff.
Deep red color. Funky nose with moldy cheese (I think this is the chocolate note others were getting but on my nose was off) and subtle charcoal notes. The whisky enveloped my mouth with some more funk (oak variety this time). Very nice pop. Overall good, not great. [12/13/13/]
