Member Ratings and Notes
Peated whisky matured in a sherry cask can be a wonderful thing. Or it can be like this, where the two flavors just don't cooperate with each other.   
Nose is kind of gaseous (read: farty) sherry.  The palate is smoky and chocolatey, with the smoke being of a type that's a whole lot like the smell outside my window right now (Nov. 2008, there's serious fires near LA) and that's half bad/good (meaning in the whisky, not for California).  Worth trying for the sort of odd flavor and type of smoke.
