Interesting that the medicinal notes of peat are there but very light.  Almost none of the smokey notes usual in peated whiskies. The peat comes from an ex-Islay cask so I guess this makes sense.  Similar to the regular expression but with that medical iodine peat tones in the background.  I like it but this needs more time to mature.

n:  Ashes in an orchard.

 

p:  Very thin.  Too thin.  Faint honeysuckle at first but mostly cereal.  I can almost pick up a little peat put I doubt I would if I wasn't looking for it.

 

Would make a good blend.

Mushy cheerios cereal. Fresh squeezed lime zest and sweetened fortified white wine. Burning peat lingers.

 

Plastic-y peat with lemon water and spice. Waxy finish with vaporous alcohol.
