Tasting Notes by galg
Nose: Plum jam. Wet earth. Tobacco leaves, leather, some tropical fruits salad, and sultanas dipped in honey. very rich, and sweet!
Palate: Bitter dark chocolate. Plums , prunes , Xmas cake. Cinnamon. Spice. Cloves, followed by wood and died apricot and sultanas, a bit dusty. A very rewarding palate, wintery, best sipped on a cold day with the fire burning (obviously not in Israel, or this part of it anyways)
Finish :coffee, wood, and bitter sweet prune jam with a bit of damp wood too.
I am a sucker for huge sherried drams , especially the ones from Glenrronach, and this one is wonderfully so. As good as it gets in this depertmant anyways. If you’re not a sherry head, then you might not go for this sort of dram. but hey, more for me.
