sample from a friend-

Nose: Ah, refreshing. The peat is obvious and intertwined with rich, lightly salted seaweed. Lemon juice in a general sherry profile. Traces of tobacco. With time, tart cherries and salted strawberries. Milk chocolate. I'm definitely digging it. (with water) A few drops brings out a softer, sweeter peat. The fruits hangs together with malted chocolate.

Palate: Even peatier here, smouldering ashes roasting a spit pig seasoned with a sprig of fresh thyme. Chocolate and stale ginger. The sherry influence emerges into the peat nicely. (with water) Sweeter on entry, though, also tannic dry. Spicier ginger and more unsweetened (?) milk chocolate. Yes, sometimes even my own notes and impressions baffle me.

Finish: I probably should have some sense of what this is. It's just a rich, well-composed, and easily enjoyable pour. It's got a lot of what I like.
