Cask 5098 – 57%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark mahogany
Nose: Prunes, cassis, balsamic vinegar, dark chocolate, leather, cinnamon and hints of pepper.
Palate: Prunes, orange zest, figs, cassis and cherries, dark chocolate, espresso, strong pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: Some very strong sherry flavours dominate this malt, the spice notes on top of that are nothing for the faint of heart.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
