Nosing: Raisin Dried Fruit
Dark fruit. Raisin and prune.

Taste: Dried Fruit
Sweet arrival. Intense flavour and viscous mouth feel. Dried fruits to start and leads into black liquorice.

Finish: ?
It has a medium short finish, but I'm not really sure what to make of it to be honest. I think it might have changed a bit since horst had it, because it isn't appreciably bitter, it just doesn't really have much character to speak of.

Comment:
I was expecting better from this if I'm honest. I try my hardest not to read reviews for a whisky before I buy it as I find it colours my perception and makes me less honest in my evaluation of it. In this case I think it would have paid to read a couple of reviews first. While I don't get the bitter finish on this that many describe, it really is an excercise in hype. The colour is just weird and is clearly down to colourant, as it doesn't have nearly enough port influence for it to have developed naturally. It has this sort of syrupy texture in the mouth so I'm guessing its just a metric ton of caramel in there. Definitely doesn't deserve its price tag.
