This is a beautiful whisky! The intensity is similar to some other Islay scotches, like Laphroaig or Ardbeg, but this one hits you with a hugely smoky taste, rather than that of peat or medicine. I had my cousin try a bit, as one of her first scotches, and her verdict was "this tastes like a fire!" I couldn't have said it better. It works nicely with a couple drops of water, but the smokiness is really best when neat.
