Not that dark - just tawny. Whisky in its mid teens, I would say, but from superb sherry casks.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fragrantly smoky. Perfumy, very floral. Hessian. Sea air. Astonishingly fresh, delicious, appetising, complex.
Palate: Perfumy start. Hint of flowering currant. Nutty. Layers of dry, black treacle, maltiness.
Finish: Smooth. Polished stone. Hard, salty, liquorice.
Comment: Not that dark - just tawny. Whisky in its mid teens, I would say, but from superb sherry casks.
Nose: Fresh, wonderfully clean Oloroso clings to the oak and peat to form a wonderful trio.
Palate: Big and chewy with the sherry and the peat in perfect harmony. Perhaps uncomplex and lacking sophistication, but the balance is quite stunning.
Finish: Long with a hint of molasses/liquorice adding to the toasty malt and rumbling smoke.
Comment: Really delightful whisky which suggests youth but offers a faultless peat/sherry combination.
