Drinkable but the sherry seems chemical to me.

Un bon mélange de la tourbe habituelle de Connemara (que je n'apprécie pas personnellement, car je n'y sens que de la tourbe) et du sherry. Le tout est bien équilibré, le sherry calme bien la tourbe. Une pointe de fruits sucrés reste sur la langue. Un mélange bien maîtrisé!

Nose

Neat: Powerful nose, and with a strange aroma. That's all I can nose. With water: No strange aromas now. Lots of wood and sherry.

Taste

Neat: All I can taste is one hell of a weird taste, I can't put my finger on what it taste like.. With water: Now the weird taste is almost gone, and nice smoky flavors comes forward.

Finish

Medium long finish, with few flavors, sorry.

Comments

A strange Connemara, can't get the smoke/sherry combo right.
