Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of sherry, dried fruits, raisins, and hints of steak seasoning.  On the palate, this is delicious.  Quite sweet, rich, and deep with good sherry, spice, and toffee. Chewy and hearty.  Long finish.  This shares many similar characteristics with the Blacker Still.  A sherry monster (at least, I think it's sherry) that could use more dimensions, but what's here is super-tasty.  On a later retaste, The Duke mentioned gunpowder... that's a spot-on call, it permeates the whole experience. B+ 
N: Chocolate first, then sherry with pepper and gunpowder.
P: Tart sherry, big full flavor, dry, abv very apparent.
F: Hot. Lingering bitter cocoa. 
Notes:  Dry sherry with sulphur
Palate:  Big sherry notes with dried, candied fruit, chocolate and some floral notes.  Full of flavor.
Finish:  Dry sherry.

Rich, complex, a great sherried malt.
