This is from a fresh Sherry butt and only 600 bottles were made. Smoked meat meets dried fruits in the smell. More meat than fruits. Peat, ashes and oak as well. The alcohol is very mild on the nose considering it is above 50 %.
In the taste, it is the dried fruits that has gotten the upper hand. Some oak and tannins is coming forward as well. It is a long finish and it is very thick in the flavours (you get what I mean?). Burned oak and ashes again.
You can really chew this one. No need for a steak here! This is a different profile than what you normally get when you mature peated whisky in Sherry casks. But this is fully matured in a Sherry cask and it is Longrow, so of course it comes out different! I will give this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
