    Disappointing. Nose - Sherry and peat are extremely well blended giving off both the acidic nature of sherry and the more earthy notes of peat all at once. This is followed with light sugary sweetness which is so common and classic in an islay scotch. Taste - The problems start when you taste it. This is YOUNG whisky but it spent enough time with the sherry cask to get some astringent notes. I'm even getting some of that young whisky bananas. I don't want to be too tough on this, it's got a nice peat profile. it's not a sherry bomb so false advertised but still there's a good bit of sherry. It's just too young. 1 star....maybe 1.25. I'm not sure when, why or how I'll end up finishing this bottle.

    I definitely get the smoke on the nose. The palate is very earthy and charred mixed with the sherry sweet. The finish is a little short but very enjoyable, smoky perhaps.
