Got this bottle for a Father's Day gift.

Nose: alcohol hits first. Then you pick up the peat which dominates the nose. Behind the peat I pick up faint floral scent.

Taste: neat, the peat taste dominates with alcohol and some good heat. With a bit of water, it opens up pear and green apple typical of a Speyside. The peat is still there but it fades back compared to the fruit flavour.

Finish: dry wih some malty aftertaste that doesn't last too long

Overall its very good, it has a decent punch of peat, not as much as a Islay, but then settles into a solid Speyside.
