Nose is sweet grassy goodness with little to no peat. Palate is very fruity and has a sweet busquits/earthy component that rounds it out nicely. Finish is medium to short. I liked it a lot but I could have used some more peat...if there was any.
Nose of deep sherry and Hobbit Hole (what, you can't imagine what a Hobbit Hole would smell like? They don't call it "Middle Earth" for nothing). The palate is fruitier than you'd expect from the nose, and a bright sort of citrusy and "happy" fruit. Yum! It's a very savory kind of flavor, with grapey berry madness mixed in. Light smoke shows in the finish with some salt. A whisky with fun complexity.
Peat, sherry, and salt meld together to form a different whisky all together, cherry metholyptus whisky perfection. In a meeting of superstars this was the brightest, not because the peat or sherry stood out, but because they didn't. Definition of well integrated and balanced. I was carrying this bottle around with me at the end of the Islay and Sherry meeting.
