A lot of bourbon cask, little to no sherry. Vanilla, some green fruits, a lot of spices, oak. Peat is clearly visible and well integrated. Does make a young impression, finish rahter short. A nice slightly peated dram, easy to drink

Nose

apart, beetje fruit tonen met turf. Beetje simpel opgezet, wel goed gebalanceerd. Apart is het juiste woord. Zilt. 

Taste

apart, lekker wel. Erg sterk wel

Finish

lekker, simpel. Ontwikkeling is er niet. Vind het turf en sherry gehalte niet hoog, tis wel lekker maar mist ontwikkeling.

Nose

Der Rauch der einem entgegen strömt wirkt etwas künstlich und aufgesetzt, leicht maritim ist er aber, Vanille, Apfel, Birne, Zitronengras, insgesamt eine leichte und unbeschwerte Nase 

Taste

Süßlich-herb, Malzsüße, vielleicht kommt auch etwas Vanille zum Vorschein aber sonst bleibt wenig Süße, im Aroma ist nur minimal Rauch spürbar, wenig bis kaum würze 

Finish

Kurz

Comments

Er ist solide und trinkbar ohne dabei jugendlich oder unreif zu wirken. Der Rauch wirkt leicht aufgesetzt daher fällt es mir schwer ihn charakterlich einzuordnen. Im Preis sicher zu weit oben angesiedelt - 26.02.2017

Color
Yellow gold
Nose
Sweet malted barley smoke, vanilla, some lemon, honey, hints of sherry (you have to know what you are looking for, the PX is more dominant), 

Taste
Sweet malted barley smoke (again), some ashes, hints of PX, quite a creamy and thick texture.

Finish
Medium. Smoke and faded lemon.

Comments
Well, the smoke (in this case the "sweet malted barley smoke") is quite dominant. The sherry is way in the back. Now if you are looking for a young peated malt with a creamy touch where the alcohol is well "interwoven" (and the whisky shouldn't be from Islay), this one is a nice expression for you. But you can't get here any complexity.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Nose:
-Malty,cooked potatoes,Spices,Herbs,light Oloroso Sherry,salted caramel

Taste:
-Spicy,Vanilla,slight Ash,bready,salted caramel

Body:
-light

Finish:
-medium long,strong Alcohol Presence

Overall:
This one needed a lot of oxidation for the Sherry notes to come through for some extra complexity.
This is worth drinking,though the first 2-3 glasses might be disappointing.
It's certainly a young Scotch though.
