Nose: Cloves crash into the sinuses first followed by the gentle caress of toffee which in turn is followed by a sweet peatiness that warns of the storm to come.
Palate: Spicy with strong peat,then there is a touch of medicinal orange rolls over the palate.
Finish: Coal smoke at first, a pleasing bitterness then emerges, with a long nutty conclusion.
Overall: This dram has flavours that intrigue, ones that assaulted and others that soothed. Great stuff indeed!
