Color
Mahogany
Nose

Fresh, wonderfully clean Oloroso clings to the oak and peat to form a wonderful trio.

Taste

Big and chewy with the sherry and the peat in perfect harmony. Perhaps uncomplex and lacking sophistication, but the balance is quite stunning.

Finish

Long with a hint of molasses/liquorice adding to the toasty malt and rumbling smoke.

Comments

Really delightful whisky which suggests youth but offers a faultless peat/sherry combination.

Color
Tawny
Nose

Fragrantly smoky. Perfumy, very floral. Hessian. Sea air. Astonishingly fresh, delicious, appetising, complex.

Taste

Perfumy start. Hint of flowering currant. Nutty. Layers of dry, black treacle, maltiness.

Finish

Smooth. Polished stone. Hard, salty, liquorice.

Comments

Not that dark just tawny. Whisky in its mid teens, I would say, but from superb sherry casks.
