It makes some interesting experiments, but not always making you feel you got what you paid for.
This one, which I rather liked have of course eluded me, so thanks to karloff for the sample.
Just like there's different ways to kill a cat than to choke it with cream, there's different ways to approach the peat-sherry combo. I'm not sure how they choked this one, and it may sound cruel, but I enjoyed this "killing".
Which means it is different, but it works for me.
Lots of maritime peat, I actually find it more peated than their Moine.
Other than smoked kippers, which is healthy, I can't say I find it medicinal in any way.
High presence but well balanced notes of semi dry sherry.
Slightly sweet red berries on a smoking spagnum skewer.
I really like the nose of this one. It started out with very dominant peat, then the sherry elbows it's way in. Not taking completely over, but persistently determined to be noticed.
I find the taste to be a very good follow up to the nose.
The salty maritime peat may beat the sweeter sherry-berry notes here, but it's a very interesting and pleasing blend of flavours.
The texture is fine and there's a steady black pepper spiciness developing.
The finish is a good medium length.
When the pepper fade it goes from sweet to salty.
