nose: mainly smoke and peat. tiny hints of sweet fruit, tiny hint of oak. the nose was gentle with the alcohol. I didn't catch any stray fumes that made me recoil taste: an initial burst of sweetness gives way to peat and smoke. there is a bit of saltiness if you look for it in the background this is a viscous whisky with great mouthfeel. it is not very tannic. mouthwatering. smooth. finish: long finish with peat initially, which gives was to fruit. after the fruit is gone, it finishes with some sea salt. very nice expression. I wasnt sure what to expect from a peated whisky finished in sherry, but I'm glad I have a bottle!
