a bit sharp nose at the beginning - needs some air, salty, elegant peat, old style spirit, vanilla sugar, smoked ham, coastal, leather, kelp marmalade, dried dark fruits, dried berries, a bit of dark wax, herbal honey, wood polish, iodine, very vivid for a 30y, deep and rich nose overall
a bit watery, old style spirit, light peat, dark chocolate, dried berries, mild peat smoke (very well balanced), honey sweetness, dried seaweed, coastal salty seabreeze, light wood spice, over brewed green tea, watery at the end
long, salty, coffee beans, over brewed green tea, oak spice, light peat, apricot pit
A really amazing dram. We can't believe this is bottled in 2022. Usually sherried whiskies bottled in recent years are full of sulphure, but this one is not even close.. Well balanced, complex and delicious.
