Nose: Right after pouring it is distinctly leather; then I notice a slight haze of seawater spray, rounded out by faint coconut milk. After some time, this develops into vanilla or apricot.

Palate: The first taste was sharply buttery, surprisingly like movie popcorn, reinforced by saltiness of a serious gratin. This sensation above lighter notes of wood and mixed fruits.

Finish: Light finish of the same character as the palate, plus some orange rind.

Frankly I did not get the chocolatey character others have described, nor a great deal of fruitiness. But I do agree that this is a quality dram, soothing and not too bitter.
