Nose
Roasted coffee beans and dark sherry. Smoky and peaty with medicinal herbalness joining forces with the Oloroso. Complex with boiled sweets, toffee, treacle and sooty smoke.
Palate
Full and rich with lots of treacly sherry. The peat is hidden beneath the sherry and the alcohol and tannins mask when neat. Smoke and barbecue meat notes power through!
Finish
Dry and intense. Still very smoky with lingering bonfire toffee, burnt wood ember and gritty peat dust.
Comment
Who says peat and sherry don't mix? A stunning whisky, with or without water.

Nose
Peat smoke and lavender, there were elements here of Juniper bonfires and coastal sea salt.
Palate
Big and bold, this is like cured air-dried ham, on thick rye bread with a layer of salty butter, consumed by a bonfire.
Finish
More of the peat smoke and hints of beef jerky.
Comment
This is a nicely composed whisky, a hunter's dram.
