The nose is really nice and malty with some fruit notes; then some nice peat sets in. The palate is a great balance of malt and peat. It's got that nice, lush, peat similar to some Springbanks that's not overpowering but still very present. As it goes out, it's peppery with peaches and dry white wine. There's a lot of body to it and it has a wonderful long, peaty finish.

 

This is really great stuff. It's balanced, it has real character (that undefinable thing that so many whiskeys seem to be lacking these days) and it's young but in no way immature. If this is only a "work in progress," I'll be excited to taste the finished product.
