I wasn't entirely sure how to approach this, as I am still a rank amateur in this particular field. Still, the best way to learn...

Nose has citrus, with a bit of iodine. Nothing stands out to this whisky lover. The first sip seemed to hold back for a moment, exhibiting some woody tones, then launched an attack of iodine upon my palate, nearly singeing the tip of my tongue in it's fervor. A bit of a rough mouth feel. A generous bit of water helps to mellow the whisky and allow some of the previously very subtle citrus notes to shine through. Less iodine this time, and much smoother on the tongue. The finish is oily and long, reminding you that the Scotch aren't the only distillers after all.
