I concur on the finish description by the MoM, but on the rest, it opens with a heavily sherry nose but still enough of the oak present to be notable. The palate does have a rich, malty core with fruit, and largely stays there, waiting for the smoke and pepper at the finish. Came highly recommended at Whisky Exchange in London, and I feel like I was guided well. (I'm a Speyside, low-peat fan).
