Cask Typeex-oloroso sherry butts
"Roasted chestnuts, brine, smoked cherries, and dry peat. These aromas come at you with the usual zeal Islay whisky brings to the table. The palate however is much tamer. The texture feels a little thin and the flavors are quite mild. Biscuits, smoked malt, dry spicy peat, and milk chocolate. The light touch from the sherry casks and alcohol leave this wanting some chutzpah."
