This whisky is all about spice and ginger notes. On the nose it is ginger biscuits and pear drops (acetone) althogh when it's been in the glass a while the pear drop note fades. On the palate their is gingerbread men, a hint of the apple strudel I picked up in the 12 year old and then the peat kicks in and you feel it in the back of your throat. Then as it fades you get a salty note and tanins. I'm generally not that keen on sherried whiskies because in my experience they are often just sherry and little else and I think if I wanted to taste that much sherry I'd just drink, you know. Sherry. But this does sherry in a goodway where it's just a part of the flavour profile and not the whole shebang.
