N: Peat and malt upfront on the nose. Lightly grassy, a touch of lemon. Some gentle wood, but a little light grain on top. Gently honeyed.
 
P: Rich peat initially. A bit towards the rubbery end of things. Full mouthfeel - lives up to the name. Faintly waxy. Nice heat; a bit malty and slightly biscuity. Faint lemon and pine. Some light honey. 
 
F: Warm and malty, with a little heat building. Nice length, nice presence. Slightly dusty and dries a bit. 
 
This is actually a really nice blend. There are single malts today that I don't think stand up to this. I'd honestly have no qualms about buying this if the modern version was up to this standard (alas it's not). This is clearly quite malt-heavy.
