Nose: Great gobs of peat with some sweet sherry in the background.
Palate: Thick, oily peat with a slight sherry background.
Finish: Peat-o-rama
This is a great heavily peated malt in a sherry cask.  It tastes like the old, oily, peaty malts from a decade ago.

Great stuff!

Buttery.  Less peaty and more buttery than a typical Ardbeg.

N: Toasted malt, barley, leather, cloves, cedar and a touch of cinnamon.  All balanced by a light yet sweet sherry cask influence.

 

P: The sherry makes a big appearance on the palate.  Very astringent and dry mid palate with alot of dry oak, licorice and herbal notes.  

 

F: Dehydrated red fruit sprinkled with sea salt.  Lasting finish

n: Generic taffy

 

p:  Sharply bitter flavor that is temporarily masked by an unnatural sweetness, like a sugar substitute.  Once that goes away, bitterness and white pepper set it.  It's not terribly bad but it doesn't leave one asking for more.

Nose is nutty and kinda sweet, reminiscent of Honey Nut Cheerios. Palate is a relative spice fest, allspice in the foreground with a mix of everyting else behind it. Butterscotch as it moves towards the decently-oaky finish. And there's an extra tangy-sweet note like plum sauce. 

 
Chris
 

N: Nectary and sweet with cinnamon and nutmeg.
P: Lots of rye spice up front, with some evergreen notes, super punchy and sweet.

F: Lots of lingering sugar in the finish.
B+/A- 

 
Sku
 

The nose has rye, anise and cloves...and cola.  The palate is sweet with tropical fruit, chocolate, then spicy with rye, trailing off to a nice, spicy finish.  Good stuff.

 

B/B+
