Review #68 - Secret Santa Mystery Dram #3 - Ron Navazzos Palazzi 15 Year Cask Strength Oloroso Finish

Mystery Dram #3

Nose: Stewed plums, dark chocolate, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, vanilla, allspice, molasses, toffee, bitter orange

Palate: Thick and sweet. Roasted hazelnuts, turbinado sugar, quince paste, vanilla, allspice, walnuts, dried fig.

Finish: Oak, vanilla, dried nuts, touches of sea salt.

Verdict: This is like rum and sherried scotch had a baby. This is delicious, rich, and complex. Strength is higher, maybe 100 proof? Sweet and sherried and woody and spicy.

Would I buy this: Depending on price, absolutely. For under 150 bucks I'd be in.

Would I order this in a bar: Yes, especially around Christmas time. This has a lot of holiday notes to me.

Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Absolutely! Slainte!

Rating: ★★★★
