For $30 a bottle (year-round at my local shop), I'm not sure you can do better than this. It's a peated Highland, so it's sort of an all-arounder, with none of the thinness or off-notes of similarly priced single malts like Speyburn Bradan Orach, etc.
The nose is mostly sweet, dominated by honeyed barbecue sauce, with complementary undertones of maple and smoke. On the palate, it's pleasantly full-bodied with lots of Highland honey and more smoke, and an oiliness that calls to mind boiled peanuts. The finish is nice and long, with a bit of ash.
