If you have not tried this excellent edition in any of its previous vintages then now is the time. Think of this as an extra sherried version of the gorgeous 16 year old. The PX sherry casks match the depth of the spirit and make this a very special dram.
Appearance: Golden treacle.
Nose: Intense peat and vanilla. A raisiny sweetness checks the smoke. Iodineedged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.
Body: Full, rich.
Palate: Sweet and luscious; clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.
Finish: Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat, and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and more-ish.
