N: Peaty and slightly vomity, but then honey and melon. P: Restrained, then sweet, vanilla, then dry and chemically. F: Long, with some wood emerging. Alternately liked and disliked, there was an funny note in here that I caught every few sips.
Nose is distincly nutty, hazelnuts stand out. Also caramel and vanilla. There's a tinge of farts, but I'm not worried. Palate -- medium-sweet, with more nuts. Spice, with some zing and tangy notes. Light smoke too. Finish is medium length and dry, and grows bitter but not bad. I really like what's going on here. A contemplative yet fun and easy whisky.
