Color: Rich Mahogany

Nose: Thick slices of fruit cake with extra raisins. Creamy sherry and liquid Christmas cookie.

Taste: Black cherry and ginger come first. Next oak and vanilla appear and a tease of orange.

Finish: Very Intense warmth (To be expected) anise, nutmeg, and cherry fall into a vanilla sherry pudding. Lovely.

Overall: All of my previous favorite flavors in scotch with the dial turned to 11 and then ripped it off. The definition of a sherry bomb. It’s scotch that took steroids to punch you in the face without needing peatey brass knuckles.

Score: 90/100
