Clean nose.  Taste is light and mild, but smoky and bright.  A very long finish, with mainly the smoke moving to the forefront... there's rough, alcohol-y patches, but not enough to turn me away.  Tasting this blind, I called it as a Caol Ila.  My SMWS title for this would be "Clean and Bright Yummy Smoke."

N: Buttered peat, toast, lavender.
P: Quite astringent, moderately peated.
F: A bit lacking, fades to a watery nothingness.
