Nose: Smoked ham, cocoa powder, a medicinal edge, damp peat, sugary sweetness, limestone and swimming pools.
Palate: Big mineral note and a burst of red fruit up front followed by liqueur chocolates, coffee grounds, medicinal peat and lots of heat. Water calms down the burn, turns up the chocolate and adds more fruit, while revealing some young spirit graininess.
Finish: Chocolate cake and coal fires, glace cherries and a hint of chlorine.
Comment: At an (estimated) 2 years old this is impressive - lots of flavour, great chocolatey notes and good on its own as well as an indication of future releases.
