Drank: Neat, in a glencairn
Nose: Gentle smoke, rich raisin, caramel, fudge, butter cake, milk chocolate.
Taste: Sweet sherry, followed by strong peat moss and sea spray, followed again by another wave of toffee. Thick and chewy with hints of clove.
Finish: Briny peat with hints of sherry and ginger lingering. Ends with a bit of a nip on the tongue showing the youth of the whisky.
