Taste: Sturdy arrival on astringent peat and leather. Licking a flintstone on the beach (I did many weird things as a kid). A funky, nutty and slightly chemical sherry flavour flashes up before the herbal and dry peatiness takes over again.
Comments: Obviously, this is young stuff. I expected that, when I ordered the bottle. But I have to say, it’s really fun to sip. Leave the pricetag aside and you get a decent, very modern take on Islay and sherry. This one shouldn’t be taken too seriously (it’s definetly NOT a sherry bomb), just crack the bottle and enjoy it with friends. This is a session malt like the younger Port Askaigs, Classic of Islay or Ileach Cask Strength for example. I like it. /86
