Member Ratings and Notes
You look at this -- in a blind tasting -- and go, wow, that looks exciting!  It's black and rich-looking.  The nose is rather light, with cranberries, hard candies, and taffy, kind of tart.  So you're super-curious now -- hmm, what's this gonna taste like?  Well, not much.  Sort of a dried fruits, spice, sweet thing in a very flat way, with some tobacco.  It's totally drinkable, just unremarkable in every way.  Reminds me of a boring, crappier Dalmore.  Finish gets kinda bitter and close-to-nasty.  Obviously, the color comes from a truckload of caramel coloring.
N: Funky burnt sherry, very figgy, smells sour and spoiled.
P: Raisins and figs, but given the color, surprisingly watery.
F: Not much.
If this was a sherry cask, it was a really bad one.
