Ferocious "Alligator" charring of new American white oak casks has created a spicy, dark dram of hidden depths, within which lurk deep tarry coffee, barbecue sizzle and sooty aromas.
On The Nose : The warning comes in smoked root ginger and barbecue sauce, white chocolate, cumin and warm oak shavings lie in wait.
The Palate: Rearing up hot and spicy, smoked and charred with a leathery and sooty mouthfeel. Smoky pak choi and barbecue bite thru, White chocolate, ginger and black bean sauce roll around and around.
The finish is slow and long with mocha espresso and ginger while the white cigar smoke slowly ebbs away.
A true beast of a whisky not for the faint hearted.
