NOSE: smokey, smoked fish, soft and fruity (pears, apples) with freshly ground pepper.

TASTE: rich, sweet and sour, peat, deliciously fruity,spicy and peppery.

FINISH: cacao, vanilla, a bit smoky, peppery again.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: smoky notes are not really that dominant on the nose. Primarily you get much more of fruits and pepper. I did get some vomit smell on the nose, though, which is not something I'd like to notice in my whisky on a regular basis. Thanks to this rather peculiar alcohol volume of 45,8...you get a full-bodied, rich, spicy, marvelous fruity, smoky taste which is, in my opinion, probably the main reason why you should bother to try this single malt.

Vomit? Wow, that must be some high class food you were eating before vomiting in order to compare the T10 to vomit. Caviar? Truffles? Smoked sturgeon? I like your honesty, Georgy. It's refreshing ; )

A touch of some high quality vomit to it indeedy!)) But then again I tried this one at a pub - so it might be the smell of somebody's "delicious" dish distracting my nose. Anyway, I guess I'll have to buy a bottle and assess it properly sometime later!
