  2. alectron scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not very active sherry here, rather quite a few active american oak (at a guess) components...
    • Nose
      First of: peaty, sweet, syrupy & creamy. Cold smoke, hay, dried peat, pear-liquor,old books, wet/germinated grains, also some toasted cereals & mint-liquor (Creme de Menthe) (86)
      A bit later: less creamy, savoury old books & grain/cereal notes push to the fore, also quite some pepper & woody spices now, (85)
    • Taste
      malty, slighly smokey, grain-y/starch-y, earthy/green peat, some wood, wood & spices, pear-liquor, barley malt syrup, more menthol than mint here, (84)
    • Finish
      spices turn towards pepper in the finish, smoke increases, nice sparkle to it & with the slight creamyness a nice contrast, also cereals have a comeback occasionally. (86)
