Nose: Ah! This is a nice one. Sherried and lovely. Rum soaked sultanas , dates and figs. Lovely fruit salad effect. Yumm. Some old furniture and cigar leaves. A certain earthiness and peat with wood spices and maybe a hint of mint too.

Palate : spicy with quite some ginger up front then getting much sweeter with honey like qualities , barley sugars , much more earthy peat than suggested on the nose, with a bitter chocolate twist.

Finish : Bitter dark chocolate , peat , soot. Very drying.

A very very nice dram with the fruit, soot, smoke, peat and dryness at the end.
