Peat smoke and a little sugar.   That's about all there is to this one.   Seems like very little contribution from the cask, a little oak or vanilla would be a nice addition.  A bit too fiery in the finish (yeah, it's 60% alcohol so that might be expected, but better whiskies are able to hide this from you).  A few drops of water help with that and bring out the sweetness.

n: not much to say.

 

p: Earthy, orverripe peaches.  Starts out ok, then the finish goes wonky.  I'm reminded of nursery school rooms and all of the excesive disinfectants that came with a minute scent that never really covered the bad.  Mind you, all of this is toned down because of the overwatering, but perhaps that's a good thing.
