Other reviews... I had found the 2013 version a little sweet, but let’s see… This is a vatting of ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso casks. Colour: white wine. Nose: there is a sucrosity indeed (opening a large bag of marshmallows) but on the other hand, the coastal peat – lime combination works very well. What’s quite impressive is the purity in this, even if that’s also what makes it a little simple. Mouth: sweet ashy peat. Brine, almonds, lemon squash, lemon drops, perhaps two sultanas (not more) and faint liqueury side indeed. Barley sugar. That ought to be the short sherry finishing. Finish: rather long, clean, with some lime and some lemon, and always this sweet roundness. Many ashes as well. Comments: it’s a little mezcaly, in fact. I think I like it better than the 2013.
