    An alcohol burn creeps along the nose and never quite fades. Taste to finish is over surprisingly fast for a 15 year old. The whole event is a bit oaky, too. The peat and sherry are well integrated, though. Just slightly better than the 12 y.o.
    • Nose
      Dried red fruits (figs, prunes, and cranberries) and dried tropical fruits (pineapple and mango), floral peat, candied citrus peels, oak and barrel char, and a touch of sea breeze and dunnage.
    • Taste
      Malt with charred candied orange peel, dark chocolate and floral ashy peat, charred marshmallow, lots of oak and some peat-smoked dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Peat-smoked vanilla, sweet licorice candy with a sprinkling of baking spices, iodine peat and a bit of violet candies, and oak and sherry tannins.
