No, this is not a peat monster. It's Islay, no doubts, just a bit milder version of it. Ther are plenty of smoke and peat, quite some fruits and grass as well.

Nose: fresh, clean, spicy, briny, peaty, lemon, freshly cut apple, smoke, smoked fish

Palate: smoke, some fruit sweetness and herbs bitterness, ash, pepper, citrus

Finish: spices, pepper, iodine, sterile bandage, lemon, chalk

Good whisky, but 12 years of maturation and 43 ABV could contribute to more behaved spirits. There's quite a bit of alcoholic bite
