Put your feet up

Speyside, Lossie

On the nose neat it was dark, dense and sweet like a mocha cake with a balsamic strawberry whipped cream filling, chocolate icing and topped with crunchy toasted hazelnuts. A lot less sweet on the palate, still dark and sticky but now more like a prune and date cake or spicy oven-roasted plums seasoned with cloves and allspice and toasted almonds sprinkled on top. Water released bitter orange, liquorice, chocolate covered prunes and a touch of wax. A lot more herbal now to taste like a Jagertee; strong black tea, red wine, plum brandy, over-proof dark rum and plenty of spices.
