Soft and savory at first sniff, with notes of vanilla and apricot. This gives way to something sharper -- brine and spice -- calling to mind a nice teriyaki glaze. This whisky has a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel -- perhaps its best quality -- and the smooth brown sugar flavor gradually heats up to spicy nutmeg. The finish is long and warming.

All that said, I was a little disappointed. There's something odd and a little off in the nose for me, maybe it's the saltiness, which I'm more familiar with as an accompaniment to peat. Without the peat to brace it, I find that the brine clashes a bit with the fruit. Glad I tried it; but I probably won't be buying another bottle.
