I tried this on a recommendation at my favorite haunt, where it's not normally even on the menu. The nose is surprising light, but peaty. The body is extremely peaty, but not particularly strong.
There is a complex play of wood, peat, smoke, and perhaps nutty flavors that is very enjoyable and very easy to sip. The palate, again, is gentle and not as overwhelming as the peaty nose and body would suggest.
Compared to the Arbeg Uigeadail, for example, the taste is every bit as peaty and complex, but far lighter and far more enjoyable for sipping. It's a surprisingly sip-able scotch, and one I will definitely be ordering again.
