Vat Out Of Hell
Nose: Sherry, but with sweet confectionery notes. Icing sugar on raspberries. Fruit flan on short crust pastry. Over time, Demerara sugar wafts out of the glass.
Palate: Beautiful silky mouthfeel – good oils and texture. Very creamy. High alcohol is well balanced and not obvious. With time, the dram changes: Vanilla custard. The crumble part of apple crumble. Quite meaty, too….a hint of lamb chops?
Finish: Still creamy. Only on the finish is the high alcohol apparent – and beautifully so, as the heat descends down your chest.
Watched the footy tonight (Essendon vs Carlton) whilst sipping the Vat Out of Hell……it’s a damned good footy dram!!
