96 Points
Colour: almost mahogany.
Nose: again a sherry monster, but this time with a big, bold peat, somehow a la Ardbeg. Haha! Incredibly rich and complex. But what a nose! Lots of meaty aromas (grandma’s meatloaf). Top notch Italian coffee, garden bonfire, Worcester sauce, tabasco, humus, burnt tyre a la Port Ellen, brand new tyre… The list could be endless… And this beautiful sherry! Triple wow, but will the mouth stand up to this extraordinary nose?
Mouth: oh yeah! A cathedral, even better than the nose. I don’t know where to start… Ok, first you have all these coffeeish notes: coffee itself, burnt cake, coffee liquor, dark toffee… Then you have the peat – but one of the most subtle and magnificent peat I ever came accross. Different woods’ smokes, seaweed smoke… And finally lots of cooked fruits. No need to tell you which, they’re all in there. As for the finish, it’s long of course, but also very complex and subtle, on ‘smoked’ fruitcake.
