What a revelation this one's turned out to be! A beautiful nose full of glorious peat, sea salt and a touch of smoldering hay. There's a faint touch of something sweet as well. The palate comes roaring to life thanks to a generous 48% ABV bringing with it a strong dose of iodine, smoky oak and pieces of dry husk. The spices dance playfully towards the end but are masterfully subdued by a touch of licorice. This can easily become one of my favorites.
