The nose has that elusive farty character that I may never find a better adjective to describe. The palate is a lot better than the nose, and indeed yummy. B-
Retaste (again blind): Nose is generally smokey, with strong smell of old books. Specific smoke smell of BBQ grill. I really like the palate. Smoke as expected, with pine/mint notes. Medium-sweet thread runs throughout in the background. Also spice. Somewhat dry. Finishes as before at length, becoming bitter and drying. Tickles my fancy with smoke and spice. B/B+
The peat comes right at you in the nose, with some fruit underneath it. The taste that hits you first is some sweetness, an almost sugary sweetness, followed by smoke. The finish returns to fruit and a bit of the smoke.
I don't think I've had a smoky Scotch that was this sweet and fruity before. A different take on peat.
