Nose: The total opposite, this is all about the cask, although I do get a whiff of Greek yoghurt again. But mostly this is about gunpowder, dark chocolate and dried fruits, but also a whisper of strawberry gelato and juniper. Intense, but there’s not much depth.
Taste: Sticky mouthfeel. Too sticky. The first sip is a little too much. Bitter coffee, dark spices and dark chocolate. Something burnished and more gunpowder. It reminds me of this heavily-sherried Daftmill, which isn’t a good thing. It doesn’t improve much upon further sipping or after adding water.
Finish: More of the above, but with a hint of aniseed.
