Nose: Ooof. That’s some powerful stuff going on here with the 60.7% ABV. It needs time and some water in order for us mere mortals to get through and sniff those magical odours. After some time i am beginning to make sense of all this : Cherries dipped in thick alcoholic syrup. Big Sherry, with a masculine bite to it. Reminds me a little of Mortlach. A bit nutty as well ? And then some marmalade.
Palate: Big,Oily body. Starting with a peppery avalanche of flavours, then we’re off to a treat with some nuts, and cherry notes. In addition some notes of newly ground Tabaco, and hints of chocolate as well. I am also getting wee smoke. Is this real? Complexity. Period. Wow.
Finish : Long, savoury. Nuts, cherries, and that Tabaco.
Bottom line : I am in love. This is one devil of sherry goodness,Complexity and sheer pleasure and joy. With an amazing ABV ,and oodles of oomph. Bring me more!!!!!!
My birthday is coming in a few months’ time. wink wink. say no more
