This is an amazing value Blended Malt Whisky, 50% abv and 22 years of age. The producers won't disclose the whiskies used to produce it... It is composed of lightly peated mystery malt and another heavily sherried whisky, married at 22 years of age. The sherry notes complement the soft oily peat smoke of the malt nicely. This one is a steal!
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: starts decadent and fruity, cocoa nibs emerge with peachy floral tones, jujubes and wine gums; the sherried tones catch up first: candied nuts, leather and dark fruits with crisp spices; then the peat chimes in: soft earthy peat oils, maritime tones and clean smoke.
Palate: big, rich and fruity; oily and spicy with dark fruits and more clean smoke; Christmas cake balances nicely with creamed heather honey; becomes leathery and more meaty (it's bacon...) with building firm spice and we leaf litter; more cocoa nibs, salted caramel and soft peat oils.
Finish: long, rich and very layered; dark fruits and spices with earthy oils; the sherry, spices and clean smoke linger longest!
Comment: this is a big whisky and a great cigar malt!
