Ooh, nice nose, medium smoke with medicinal stuff, kinda Laphroig-y.  A strong sweet background of maybe oranges.

Wow, very sweet as the nose suggested. And massively potent. The smoke and fruity stuff are in equal parts. It's fun to drink at full potency, and though it screams for water, H20 flattens this out a little and removes some of the sweetness I liked.

This is great stuff, but be in a fire-eating mood to drink it for maximum flavor.

N: Fruity and punchy, very evaporative, really attacks the nostrils with a fruity / floral blast.
P: Bubble gum, punchiness still there, digging this.
F: Bit of oak on the finish but stays clean.   Nice.
