Nose: The aroma amalgamates coastal elements with peat and sherry in a Highland style.
Palate: Coffee and salt are very present with a hint of peat and some sweeter notes of caramel in the background.
Finish: The finish is hot and spicy and clings on for some time.
Overall: This great blended whisky is a challenge and that's a compliment. It forces the drinker to take stock and appreciate its many elements. Superb!
