More samples!

Nose: Cheese! goat cheese and salted manchego. Oily, waxy, and a touch nutty. Some vanilla in the back. Plastic a la putty (it's actually appetizing). The peat and smoke are there, but just barely. Just a hint of grapefruit and sweet lemon. Pinch of salt. (with water) more farmy and smokey. Still some cheese back there. Honey and creamy vanilla. More waxy lemon, peaches, and some soft fruit. whiff of smoke.

Palate: Salty cheese and nuts with honey drizzled on top. Ashy, and light coal. it also has a more straightforward sweetness. Lemon (zest) and olive oil. Delicious and close, but not fully peaty and farmy as maybe more traditional Broras. (with water) More of the same, with the coal character more prominent here. Still has olives, almonds, honey, vanilla, ginger -- it's just all around fab stuff. I may even grade this up just because it was a bit different. And I like olive oil.

Just finished off the last of my sample. Tasting notes are still very, very accurate, and very, very delicious.
