A first-fill sherry butt gives this malt the color of 10W30 motor oil. The nose is old oak and dark chocolate, with cinnamon and nutmeg, and the taste is intense and fiery. Chili peppers draw down to reveal notes of dried fruits with a creamy smoothness. The finish has a caramel candy sweetness to it that left me wanting more.
