Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet smoke and vanilla.  Gentle spice.  Not remarkable in any way, but a lightly-peated decent sipper.
N: Musty peat, smoke, and salt.
P: A descent dry peat, nothing else of merit
F: Peat.
Not bad stuff, just very simple.   Along the lines of a young Caol Ila.
Fresh green wood (not a good thing).  At best it is disinteresting.  That is the best you can home for, however.

Nose:  hunks of peat served with fruit.

Palate:  Peat on top with a bit of fruit/fruit syrup underneath, citrus and then ending with smoke into the finish.  Tastes young.

A pleasant, very drinkable whisky. 

Smells of syrup, toffee and toasted bread. Starts off very spicy and dry and then it dies off leaving a slightly smoky astringent aftertaste.
