Sherry and no peat is a little sad, but this bottle really shines as a great example of quality independent cask selection.
Rich malty and sherry, coastal notes with a twinge of salty brine. It's heady sherry, a touches of yeast and cranberry. It's vegetal, a little farmy too, coca and a slight hint of wilted floral notes too. As it develops there's a tar note, a bit more farmy and a touch more chocolate, less fruits.
Spicy and dry, hints of brine and earth capture the front end. Loads of sherry spices, dry wood, vanilla and fresh herbs cost in. More salty notes temper the fruits and bring on dryer wood notes, old oak and hints of wet stone too and a touch of honey crests into the finish.
Long and drawn out. This is tasty stuff, sherry leads, oak follows and malt covers everything. More earthy notes, mossy and a touch of honey again, citrus tingles and something like cereal grains.
