Not sure about the bottling code. The market code is 13001713 and it was acquired in Chicago (bottled in 2013).

Nose: soft and alluring, with pronounced sweet fruit, smoke, and ash.

Palate: you know what...it was just OK. Honey and ashy smoke combine, honey-citrus, then astringent peat with mild honey. Love the ubiquitous honey undertone.

Finish: spice and mild citric acidity with lingering mild honey.

Overall, a balanced and competent malt. Slightly too astringent on the palate but nice overall. It didn't really wow me or blow me away, though I am comparing a relatively recent bottling to my expectations, which are certainly based on previous bottlings on which this malt has built its massive reputation.
