An incredibly dark whisky; very rich in texture.
Initially, the nose is delicate – not what you would expect after seeing this colour. Once a little air has interacted, strong sherry aromas emerge, bringing forth a waterfall of scents varying from lychees to papaya.
As you would expect from a whisky of this calibre and age, the presence of the oak is strong. Adding a little water takes the edge away from the tannins, revealing flavours of brandy and armanac.
A powerful whisky. Although less than 50% vol, it tastes much stronger and this is evident on the finish.
