    On the first few drams the peat and the sherry didn't really marry well. Halfway through the bottle, things fell into place, resulting in a very enjoyable and engaging dram. While it’s both seriously peaty and quite straightforward sherry driven, making this a bold, rich and thick whisky, it is neither a peatmonster nor a sherrybomb, as the two seemed to have settled whatever argument they might have had at some point to coexist and balance each other out nicely.

      it’s the sherry that’s doing a lot of the talking with an outspoken sensation of Christmas pastries and cake, a lot of raisins, figs and plums and dark berries. Underneath a citrus note shows up, with a subtle sour touch and a mineral note. The first 10 minutes the smoke is soft but over time the smoke becomes more and more active, bringing out a stronger orange note with it.

      things take an interesting turn. There is much more smoke going on, with clear ashy notes to be more precise. It’s not an aggressive bonfire smokiness, but rather elegant. It counterparts the Christmas flavours nicely. Rather like enjoying a nice cigar while digging into a fruitcake. There is a clear touch of chocolate and hints of coffee that sort of bridge the ‘gap’ between the smoke and the sherry.

      long and woody with a sweet berry note and again the coffee is showing up in the back.

    Probably the most complex of the three Peat and Sherry I had. And also very different. Nice that you can really find such clear differences. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/04/13/peat-sherry/
