Color: Orangish gold

Nose: Peat smoke, sea air, pine and cedar trees, heather, and slight whiffs of grass.

Taste: Sweater than the nose, with honey and apple, which then proceeds to become earthy. More smoke appears with a taste of salted meats and old wood.

Finish: Very gentle and a bit dry. Light peat smoke and a bit of dirt linger in the mouth with just a light touch of ginger.

Thoughts: Slightly above average peated malt. I like the wood notes from the nose and the variation in taste that occurs on my palate. Not a fan of the fake coloring.

Score: 78 out of 100
