If you knew I was a Speysider you could guess where this is going... Nose was medium, obvious smoke & peat, but not fully rewarding... I did detect slight mineral & seawater after a few minutes... light fruit shows up after 15 mins. Nice legs! Palate brings more peat, smoke, slight salmon and earthy tones... it made me want to have some smoked salmon on hand immediately. The finish was rich at first but quick to fade in the back of the throat, lingering smokey & antiseptic-medicinal taste, but not unappealing. After water (10%) makes this a bi-polar dram that smooths everything out, making you want to sit on the porch on a rainy evening, relaxing with smoked salmon & listening to Otis Redding singing, "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay." Let me know if this is accurate... never had a dram that made me crave smoked salmon and Otis Redding!
