From a 50mL mini
Nose: Rather like a 10-15 year Demerara rum. Some caramel and coffee. Also a very slightly salty sherry profile of red berries. Also tart like an aged balsamic vinegar. Winey, thick, and delightful.
Palate: Approachable neat, and surprisingly calm and still warming. More obviously on sherry here than the nose, burned sugar, and Arabica coffee grinds. Less discernible fruit, with caramel and fudge.
With water Nose: less aggressive sherry. Trucks full of dates. Cigar wrappers and older rum. Caramel. Delicious.
Mouth: Some coffee and chocolate. Unsweetened, boozy strawberry jam. Still, a spirity and off-sweet quality permeates, akin to an old and dark fruit cake.
Finish: coffee, chocolate, bitter orange liqueur, dark coffee cake with stale candied fruit. B+ (87).
It makes me really wonder what the new 20 year 105 is like. I wish that I could get my greedy lil' paws on that!
