Nose: Airing it for a while, Seems like a powering sherry sweetness, very quickly the soothing peat that comes together is nice, after that there's a follow-up of higher ABV, in between, there's a whiff of smoke.

Palate: Totally didn't expect the palate, the soothing smell gave a punch of ashy with some ABV bloom, followed by a tinge of bitterness behind. Another gulp gave me a mix of flavours on the palate, bitterness still follows shortly.

Finish: medium-long with bitterness coating it feels to me like biting a roasted coffee bean you get the burnt roast smell with the bitter cocoa, after a while, there's an ashy lingering in your mouth.

With a few drops of water - easier to drink

Nose: sherry mellowed down a bit, you still get a combination of everything you may need in Peat and Sherry

Palate: ABV mellowed as well, making it very easy to drink

Finish: nice light ashy, bitterness became very light, nearly unnoticeable


Specially selected for @whollyspirits , Malaysia, and exclusively available to members of Dram Full Whisky Community - Malaysia.

Elements of Islay is an iconic range of whiskies created to celebrate the uniqueness of Islay malt whiskies.

Unique even within the range, Peat & Sherry is a blend of Islay malts that is then matured in sherry casks, and meant to highlight the diverse range of flavours and the different styles of each distillery.

This particular Malaysia exclusive bottling has been matured in a single sherry hogshead. This marriage of single malts combines the heavy smoky style of Islay with the richness of sherry cask maturation. This is a limited edition of 420 bottles.
