Tasting Notes From Jim Murray

More than a hint of demerara rum to the rich, sherried nose. Molasses sweeten the high roast Java while the barley screams to make itself heard; the oak has a slightly unusual, mossy earthiness adding to the overall enormity;

The palate is swamped in luxuriant, lush sugar-coated burnt raisins; wave upon wave of spice explode on the back of the tongue and roof of mouth. A big, sugary coating gives a distinct crispness to the rigid malt;

The coffee, so well defined on the nose, returns here with even more molasses to sweeten it up. Excellent soft oils coat the roof of the mouth, ensuring a long fade as busy spices continue there lively assault. The juicy barley finale offers a welcome lightness and balance.
