Nose: An abounding smell, a mixture of iodine, peat and sour.
Flavour: Deep peat, a very subtle, complex and compleet taste.
Body: A bit syrupy. Slowly works it's way from the front of your mouth into your chest via your nose, but doesn't stop spoiling your papillae when it's moved on. A real feast.
Comments: It has all the qualities of a superb whisky in abundance.
