Palate & finish: sparkles a lot at first, then the peaches come back; they are slowly turning into an old, set sherry, which remains medium to long.
Conclusion: Even if the alcohol could be integrated a little better, this malt is extremely well balanced and even complex, clearly in the old sherry style. Above all, it is not arbitrary / interchangeable, but has character. Blind & diluted, I would have thought that it was an approximately 18-year-old standard with a proven barrel selection, which ensures a striking character. Or - not diluted - for a mega Gordon & Macphail Cask Strength. Unfortunately, awesome, unfortunately only a bottle, which I'm afraid doesn't have a long life ahead of it.
Edit: On the second tasting, I also have subtle floral notes and rose hip jam in the background. I notice a little more wood on the palate than the first time. But I have to say: The nose is much better than the palate.
Overall, a big advantage that it is a whisky and not a mixed wine drink. A little too much of the latter lately.
