Nose: peat (duh), burning charcoal in a BBQ pit, salted butter, grilled lemons, an interesting floral note.
Palate: I get a great sense of charred wood. There's an initial sweetness that is subtle and doesn't stick around for long. A bit of pepper. This one really reminds me not of a bonfire, but of a cookout and I like that.
Finish: classic peat and smoke, unaccompanied.
Great whisky. All the flavors are in harmony. I don't find this to be super complex (it's not simple either), but that certainly doesn't stop it from being a great whisky. Quite flavorful. A great representative of Islay.
