Notes

Pouring this sample into the glass a warm deep bright auburn colour was revealed and the nose was just nuts - roasted chestnuts, coffee-candied macadamia and a chocolate, hazelnut and sherry cake. Awesome taste neat, staying with the nuts at first, pecan and almonds but also prunes, dates and a chocolate mousse made with espresso and Ras el hanout spice mix. Takes water well; sweet wet earthy aromas were mingled with ground coffee, incense and molasses and to taste; like biting into a chocolate muffin with an oozy, gooey chocolate truffle centre. After eleven years in a re-charred hogshead we transferred this whisky into a first-fill oloroso hogshead.
