Pale amber colour. The aroma is rich, peaty and aromatic. Iodine, oak and a bracing brininess as well. Intense charriness and a touch of soft fruit and wood that just underlie the rich peat. This is incredibly intense with a bracing smokiness. There are some light toasted caramel notes in back as well. It opens up and although the peat and smoke are always the star you get some of the underlying complexity and a bit of honey and fruit come out. A damn fine dram.
