This is a bit mental. It is so dark you would never think it was a whisky. It looks like a glass of Oloroso sherry or coca cola.
My bottle is 515/546 of cask SO60703030.
The nose as you would expect is a massive hit of sherry. Thick, sweet dark fruits, dates, and raisins. A twist of liquorice, woody notes, nuts and vanilla. Sherry, lots and lots of sherry.
The palate is an odd bag. Bitter wood, pepper, vanilla, dates and raisins. Oh why oh why oh why doesn't this taste like it smells.
The balance is all wrong. I hope it is just a dodgy cask. THe nose is intriguing and alluring. It lets you think you are about to taste something amazing and then you take your first sip and a large dose of disappointment.
It looks amazing, smells amazing, tastes weird.
The realisation kicks in, what does a bottle of this cost...?face palm.
What a wasted opportunity to create something magical. I want to try another bottle to see if it is just mine or not.
