Surprisingly clear smoke, a slight smoked bacon note and some prunes (the sherry is subtle but clearly noticeable despite the small amount), but a somewhat flowery, sweet note of cereals and citrus fruits is dominant, along with dried garden herbs and a bit of bitterness from the oak. After the first sip, the grain turns a little into malt coffee. Intense but quite simple nose that brings exactly what you can expect from paper.
Now you notice the 50%. The smoke will now be warm and slightly ashy. Again lots of fresh grain and lemon peel. Vanilla and cold herbal tea sweetened with honey.
Already a touch of chocolate and the oak is already knocking. That adds a little spice to the already intense taste.
Mhh what a nice finish. Warming smoke, dry sweetness, malt and bitter herbs as well as pleasant wood and a hint of coffee-chocolate confectionery. Unfortunately only a little over medium in length.
