Nosing: Sherry Dried Fruit Chocolate Peach Fruit Nuts

Taste: Nuts Dried Fruit Maritime Notes

Finish: Nuts Dark Chocolate

Comment: I've heard this is somewhat smoky; it is not. I've heard from the distillery itself in an interview, they do not peat this one. I think people hear it's an Islay and automatically think it is....this one exhibits a lot of nuttiness and a balanced sherry profile. This is not Glendronach levels of sherry influence, but it also has this chocalatey thing going on...this is a fresh pour so i can imagine this one changing over the course of a few months of drinking and being open.
