Smells quite rich, heavy sherry, dark cocoa, dark chocolate and then the dark fruits come in, blackberry, blackcurrant and ripe dark plums.
Hints of old leather, books, saddles, like sniffing an old library.
uber fruity but also dry with some bitterness from the oak.
Thick resinous, dark sherry, but also very oaky, the cask has taken this over and it has lost its balance, the oak dominated the peat and dark fruits.
Give it more time and the fruit does seem to come back and it is almost like the fruit has had a 2nd wind, and it is well received because it saves this one.
Not particularly long, but the fruit is still coming back and the peat re merges also.
