Nose: Sherried. Pungent. Biscuity. A fruity sweetness in the back. Peaty as well. Earth, moss and wet leaves. Distant smoke.
Palate: Sweet at first, then the oak grips releases a bitter flavour. Fizzy on the tongue. Dark chocolate, liquorice. Burnt caramel.
Finish: Dry and crisp. Oaky aftertaste.
Comment: A strong character. Peat and sherry are closely interlaced. A warmer up\ron icy days.
Nose: A deep, smoky nose but its a peatinesss that's well integrated with a lush fruitiness. Dry roasted spices and tobacco. The overall effect is like woodsmoke clinging to the clothes while sitting round a campfire.
Palate: Light smoky to start then it deepens into those cooked fruits and a little black olive tapenade.
Finish: Sweet and smoked.
Comment: Every element in harmony and adding to a complex whole. A triumph.
