Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: damp, boggy peat. Dry grass/hay. Slight whiff of burnt paper, but otherwise little in the way of smoke. Also subtle sweetness, hinting at vanilla. Peaty and tangy, all right.
Taste: light-bodied, it arrives with lots of peat and also a squeeze of lemon. It is a double-layered delivery of sweet and peaty flavours, though without much complexity. Flavourful but unchallenging.
Finish: fades rather quickly for a peaty whisky. Some nice sweet-dry echoes, though.
Balance: while not a knock-your-socks off whisky, Peaty Tang is just so darn enjoyable. It does what it does extremely well, and nothing is off-balance at all. Nicely put together.
