My Tasting Notes:
Nose: Dark berries, chocolate, some honey, toasted wood, smoke, a whiff of Chinese firecrackers.
Palate: Quite heavy, even a little beefy. Berries, cherries, cocoa, quite a bit of smoke and those pyrotechnical notes again.
Finish: Endless, dry, smoky and fruity.
Overall: Sulphur is not always a welcome addition to a malt’s aroma, but for this whisky I think it works phenomenally well. It is interwoven with dozens of flavour notes and none really sticks out. There is so much going on in that extremely complex whisky. A true cracker of a dram!
