My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Tarry smoke, a freshly cleaned hospital hallway, liquorice, dried figs, hints of dark chocolate and cloves.
Palate: Rather strong and dry peat, liquorice, mixed dried fruit, cough syrup, nutmeg, cloves, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: The (mild) PX sweetness makes this an interesting variation on the Quarter Cask. It is well worth a try although it shows a little less complexity.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
