Peat smoke, and hot tar wake up your senses as soon as you smell the whisky, this powerful flavour changes to a spicier note and a little sweet vanilla and chocolate.
The palate gives the perfect balance of smoke and fruit. There is also the expected salinity and nuts.
A very smooth long finish, with gentle smoke and smoked fish.
