Rich amber-gold, almost tending to orange. The aroma is richly peaty with a nice heathery component as well. Floral and a little but spicy as well. There is a light bite of alcohol lending a long peppery finish to the dram. A lingering smokiness with a heavy peat footprint as well. A little bit oily on the palate with a beefy sort of savoury character through the middle. Lots of smoke retronasally along with a lighter, grassy note underneath. The whisky is well integrated up front with a sort of rough transition to the long peaty finish.

I say this only in a complementing way: I get a whiff of plum brandy when I introduce my nose to the rim of this bad mother! Then, as with any good slivovice experience, I lose about a day.

Second time around with this bottle and no regrets!
