Color: Just the palest whiff of a darker reddish hue giving perhaps a hint that this was aged in a refill sherry cask.
Nose: Montreal Smoked meat on Pumpernickel with a dark molasses and black bean sauce. I will be honest here and say that no such sandwich exists but I want one in the worst way.
Palate: The weight of the 58.9 seems just perfect with the oily palate coating experience of this dram. Earth Wind and Fire could write a song about this whisky with their sweet soul vibes adding a smooth backdrop. Dark heavy chocolate here and warming dark stone fruit compote with an earthy smoky essence running right through everything.
Finish: Softening peat that fades to a lasting finish that throws in a sparkle of burnt Tangarine zest.
