A nice, spicy toffee nose with hints of dark berries at first but let it develop in the glass as it keeps changing, faint medicinal notes emerge, very faint iodine, hints of peat but it also has a herbal side being slightly grassy with various green herbs thrown in, perhaps parsley & sage but difficult for me to decipher.
A very good nose
Quite thick on the palate with a big peat/sherry combo washing across your taste buds mixed with malt loaf, raisins and brown bread crust.
Slightly bitter with the oak coming out but heck its 50 years old so I will not hold that against it too much.
The sherry takes centre stage with the spice with some nice jammy notes of raspberry & blackberry
Not the longest but pleasantly sweet and remaining spicy
