This sherry butt has achieved the tricky balance of peat and Sherry beautifully. Aromas of cigar box, leather and honey abound. The palate delivers a near perfect Orcadian whisky, balancing dried figs, dates and prunes with peat smoke and complex floral notes. This superlative whisky finishes with clove rock and more rich fruit.
