Nose: This is a battle between peat and spice. The smoke swirls around a battalion of pepper and cinnamon.
Palate: The smoke arrives first followed by an immense creaminess on the palate, then notes of sherbet lemon emerge.
Finish: The finish is fruity with just a hint of soot and nutmeg.
Overall: This is a whisky for the peat-heads and is a great example of what's coming out of Bruichladdich's peat project.
