First of all for beginners: it is smoky, but not nearly as "stinky" as the Ardbeg TEN.
Maritime note is clear, some iodine as a 'medical note' is also present, as is the campfire character. The sherry aroma comes with a delay, but can still be smelled clearly, along with some sweetness. Lightly smoked ham.
Start a little weak, but comes. Smoke weaker than in the nose. Spices and sherry. Salty on the tongue. Iodine & maritime note not so strong (but still very pleasantly present). Smoked ham a little more concise. Slight sweetness.
Oak quite weak. Smoky, ham, spices. Slight malt note. More maritime than Bowmore 12, but similar with the smoked ham (Bowmore 12 is a bit more pronounced there).
