Nose: Delicate peat with background fruit, floral and hard candy notes. Palate: A peat blast with sweet notes throughout; sugar and spice in perfect balance. Smoky candy. Finish: Peat, butterscotch and a drop of sweet wine.
Ooh, that palate hits the spot. Definitely peated but not obnoxiously so, rich but not cloying. Finish is a little minty and herbacious, very lengthy, excellent. The mildly sweet fruity-honey stuff really plays well with the smoke.
N: Iodine, seaweed (that brown stuff on the beach), smoked ham.
P: Smoke on top of light fruit, some gamey notes (like steak juices). F: Nectary, smoke lingers. Lots going on, but maybe a little to melded together, no flavor note jumps out at me that makes me really love it and boost it to A-.
