The nose has an herbaceous quality along with the strong dose of peat; there's some juniper in there. The notes follow into the palate with some sweet notes early on, but then it becomes all peat and herbs, like a peaty pesto. The finish, as expected, is just a big dose of peat. I really wish they had bottled a cask strength, because I think it would have been fantastic. As it stands, it's good, but nowhere near what I would expect for the price.
