n:  Sea air.  Fairly tame though.

 

p:  Flat and ashy.  Not too much going on but makes me think of smoldering embers.

 

 
Fuji
 

N: Oily sharp peat spice.  Theres melted butter on this with some corn sweetness.  Herbal and floral qualities contrast the pepper spice.

P: Sea salt / brine initially followed by citrus peel and minerals.  Gets tarry and murky midpalate (conjurs images of a swamp)

F: Black tea and licorice

 

The darker side of bowmore.  More sooty and  obscured which sounds bad but this really worked.  B/B+
