Peat & Sherry 近年好似變左個trend咁 逢Peat & sherry 唔少作品個價都貴小小... ,
而今年MMA 大獎由一支8年既Sherry Caol Ila 贏得後, Young Caol Ila同Sherry桶有關係既作品更加備受關注
其中今年Feis Ile Caol Ila 亦再推出既16YO 亦同Sherry桶有關係 (2016, 2017, 2019都有推出)
Amoroso即甜既Oloroso, 有時會叫Cream (有指Cream係最初比English market既名)
唔算常見, 最常見應該係支Talisker Distiller's Edition
Online tasting note for reference:
Some prickle at first and a sweet top note. Water brings up antiseptic notes reminiscent of carbolic soap.
At natural strength, rich and thick in texture with an immediately very sweet, powerful taste. The spiciness of stem ginger and deep fruitiness, backed by faint smoke. Good at natural strength and softened with a drop of water, a deliciously sweet and gingery dram.
Rich, long and lasting. Leaves a delicious aftertaste.
