N: Chalky and flinty, with a little dose of white pepper. Some Fuji apples. A bit of pungent earthiness.

 

P: Surprisingly thin initially. Chalky. White pepper. A little dry wood kick. Again, some pungent earthiness. A little apple comes through after a bit.

 

F: Warm initially with a bit of wood. A nice mix of apples, pie crust, and white pepper.

 

A little more dimension (SEE WHAT I DID THERE) than the average Glenrothes, as well as a profile that almost seems (really) old school, but this didn't come together for me.
