The nose on the Leviathan has a new make quality similar to the Lost Spirits Seascape, very malty, also with some smoky mezcal notes. On the palate I expected a peat assault, but it's more of that smoky mezcal. The finish has peat notes, but also lots of dark chocolate. The finish has barbecue ash. If I was blind tasting this, I most certainly would have guessed that it was a smoky mezcal.
Light golden color. I really like the nose which has peat (a lot!), fire and oak (kind of like a burning bush smell), and chocolate cookies. The palate is also very peaty, and also features newspaper and vinegar; it is also very earthy. The draw is very nice and lingers for quite some time. Cask #7. [2/14/13, retaste 8/7/13]
