    On the nose, there are sweet fruits, heavy peat and smoke, surprisingly salty and briny at first impression, then carries itself to honey, vanilla, apples, citrus, ginger, barley sugar new oak, and even soy sauce. Palate is creamy and savory, still surprisingly thick and salty, honey and pepper show up later with peat and hints of nuttiness. Finish is medium-long, lingering sweet and salty aftertaste along with pepper and spices. Water brings out more fruity and vegital notes but not much else; definitely enjoyed it more neat with that intensity much like an islander or even Islay malt.

      More new oak spices would bring it to another level
