sweet and salty battle for supremacy. You can still find this one for around 60
EUR. Thanks, Ruben.
The nose is pretty hearty, actually. Apart from loads
of fruits, clearly from the sherry cask because it offers strawberries, dried
peach, honey and juicy plums, I also get some maritime notes. Pistachio nuts
and burnt barley. Milk chocolate with hazelnuts. A little waxy with a touch of
smoke. This is very nice.
It is quite oily and spicy (think nutmeg), but mostly
sweet. Full flavours of nuts and chocolate, some tobacco and stewed fruits.
Mildly drying with a hefty helping of peat.
In the long, warm finish, that drying continuous and
allows the peat the final spotlight.
