The nose is pungent, earthy and industrial with grippy, alcohol enhanced tannins, raisins, sultana, leafy, astringent Oloroso notes, manure, green nuts, coffee and malt.

The palate is a little sweeter than the nose but still not exactly what you would call soft. Dunnage laced sherried dried fruit, liquorice and industrial barley follow. Subtly malty and astringent with coffee, leafy Oloroso, green nuts and olives on the middle. The alcohol is well integrated but does mask the finish a little. Good tobacco, coffee and bitter chocolate tannin after-taste.

A drop of water doesn't make much change to the nose. A little oilier and less grippy but its still industrial and sherried. The palate is a little softer but still sherried and nutty with more sultana, more bitter chocolate and more hard as nails malt. It's also ramped up the intensity of bitter tannins on the finish but it has also brought out an odd perfumed orange note. Definitely uncompromising.

Please note that the branded Glencairn glass is not included with this bottle. It however can be purchased separately for £8.95
