Definitely lots of sherry in this! Sweet black grapes and prunes dominate but the ashy peat and medicinal notes are big. The peat comes across with rubbery campfire notes on the palate and has a long candy like sweet finish. This is the equivalent of candied peat. More peat than I'm used to with Port Ellen and not very complex but it's still good.
