When it works, it works. I mean the combination of sherry and peat, of course. I enjoy this admixture, especially when both profiles compliment rather than combat or cancel one another.
Nose: sweet red fruit encasing rich fat peat. Wisps of sweet smoke, clove, and cinnamon.
Palate: rich, sweet, red fruit arrival with a spice and fat peat undercurrent. Faint smoke. The spices develop more forcefully at the end.
Finish: sweet fruit dominates the smoke as spices swim their way to the fore. Eventually drying and spicy with some residual sweetness. The finish lingers as the sweetness subsides leaving soft smoke and spice.
Great dram for a surprisingly decent price at our local population-fleecing state-run liquor control (LCBO).
