Mellow peat thanks to the Sherry maturation: Tight and nervous nose, fresh and floral, reminiscent of grilled almond. Full-flavored, powerful, nervous yet silky textured, it feels round and soft on the palate with licorice flavors. Nice length, very fresh, round, spicy and peppery, slightly toasted. Like a fight between Sherry and Peat: "Candid" means that this whisky has been bottled just before that peat disappears.
Reminiscent of "Michel Couvreur Disclosure" available in 2008 : iodine distillate matured in a fresh PX cask providing a mellow and peaty balance.
