This one is a Scallywag and I think a bit of fun. Nose is stewed fruits, sherry, malt and vanilla, citrus maybe blood orange and hint of something funky. Nose is reasonably complex. Taste is like the nose in many ways being fruit driven but quickly it all gets blended in with a burnt sugars and the sugar note is not one note it's complex. Think bake fruits covered in brown sugar topped in dark chocolate. Finish has hints of ginger spice and a decent dash of pepper and tannin. Medium long finish. Water brings out more citrus notes in the nose but removes the Scallywag from the taste and it become a bit smooth and boring. But straight up this is an exciting and fun dram. Thanks to Cascode for the sample!
