In my opinion, a timeless malt that everybody should try at least once.

N:First notes of obvious peat smoke which is slightly sweet. Light caramel and toffee, followed by a bit of toasty almond and slights of marzipan. Vanilla with undertones of oak followed by a touch of heather. B:The legs are between thin and moderate thickness with a moderate spacing. Small beading and oil seems sparse. Appears a flat gold in colour. T:Sweet warmth, light toffee, touches of peat with more sweet smoke. Sea salt and vanilla make a show with a slight sourness combining itself to the sweeter side making a very pleasant unison. F: Mouth is neither drying or watering, with onset smokiness and tendrils of peat. This is followed by heather honey and citrusy grapefruit. Finish sticks around but is too short.

A very good entry level whisky with alot to give but could improve on the finish.
