Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: seaside notes of salt and seaweed, medicinal and iodine notes as well. The peat and smoke is quite large but isn't very powerful. Large underlying notes of malted barley and cereal.
Palate: Has a very oily texture, first notes to hit my tastebuds is a massive wave of malt and honeycomb sweetness quickly followed by a oily tasting smoke, also big notes of salt.
Finish: The peat fades, finishes on malty sweetness and sea salt.
Quite a decent blend from JW and much better then there standard black. Still a little bland in flavour and lacking any punch but it should make newcomers to whisky or someone wanting an easy drink quite happy.
