ABV: 53.3% ABV
Age: 22 Years
Nose: Sweet syrupy and rich – nutty sherry, toffee, wine sweetness, fig, date, stewed fruits.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Some heat. Sweet fig, date, sulphuric, nice oak. Heat grows over time.
Finish: Long but hot and sulphur forward.
Overall: Nose and palate are good but things go south in the finish. A good price for the stats on this bottle, but I’m not thrilled with how the quality stacks up. I’d save my dollars, personally.
Thanks for reading!
