    Honey and jammy fruit on the nose, same on palate with a little late-to-mid-palate wood spice, and a medium finish. Pleasant but not much in the way of complexity.

    Caramel, peaches and banana on the nose; honeyed, fruity palate marred by unbalanced mid-palate wood spice. Pleasant finish.

    Sherry, sherry and more sherry up front. A few drops of water and a little time in the glass and unsuspected complexity bursts forth: toffee, nuts, raisins, figs, orange, clove, chocolate, heather and salt. Maybe even a little smoke? Every sniff, every sip and something new pops up. This is amazing whisky!

    Fantastic balance between peat smoke and sherry sweetness. (Perfect on the nose, slightly tilted towards peat on the palate.)

    Incredibly complex — so complex in fact that’s difficult to figure out what’s going on in there. May yet revisit it, but didn’t “wow” me. May yet revisit.
