Pours jet black with a rich dark brown head. Baker’s chocolate, coco and espresso jump out of the glass. Buttery sherry makes a brief appearance before disappearing into a soft cask house aroma (anyone who’s visited a large whisky distillery’s barrel ageing warehouse will know the smell) with just a tinge of alcohol burn. Bitter chocolate and coffee dominate the palate. Burnt espresso plants it’s flag on the finish.
