This is my first review, but it's time I gave it a go.
The color is a pale gold, rather beautiful, but unfortunately caramel-colored. There are very, very slow tears forming.
On the nose we get some smoke, but mainly a citrus-like fragrance. On the palate the peat takes a step forward, but without dominating anything. The whisky turns to an oily texture, making it a rather chewy mouthful. Hints of some pepper. Finish with smoke and more pepper, some of the citrus also comes back up. The finish is soft but lingers on.
On the whole a lovely dram, but not what I would expect from an Islay whisky.
