Cask 1283 – 50.9%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Raisins, tobacco, polished wood, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Palate: Raisins, plain sugar, fudge, hints of cloves, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Medium long and spicy but rather sweet.
Overall: Quite pleasant on the nose but palate and finish are a bit disappointing. There is a nice spiciness but it just feels a bit too sugary.
Rating: 81/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
