Palate: peat,apricots,raisins,cloves. Initially smooth.
Finish: Ashy, vanilla,cloves, briny lemon.
Memory(smell of glass afterwards): Leather, raisins.
I felt this scotch fell short. There was a lot going on, however, it seemed like it was missing something. Don't get me wrong, this was an enjoyable scotch to drink, but it lacked something I can't seem to pinpoint.Perhaps its because I don't like cloves;It had a bit of a sharp unpleaseant edge to it.
