Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Huge notes of sherry with beautifully creamy malt and fruit. It develops with butterscotch, manuka honey, and the sweetest, creamiest sherry you'll ever smell! A touch of berry fruit, and quince jelly.
Palate: Rich and umami-like, there is an intense amount of cocoa and panna cotta, with dry sherry and molasses. It becomes peppery, and there is a good dollop of caramel source too.
Finish: Very good length, ends on burnt sugar, dark chocolate and tobacco leaves.
