This is not an easy whisky. It has a fair wood effect, which makes adding water a tad tricky: too much water will kill it (by becoming too tannic). Overall, it's a good whisky, better than the youngish stuff that is released nowadays.
Obviously the same profile as the "Almost there", but creamier due to the fact that the wood had its effect. It's certainly friendlier. Lemon milkshake, toast, wood chips, cut grass, a hint of a farmyard, oysters, kippers, and moss.
Quite punchy and hot without dilution. It has plenty of pepper, licorice root, lemon zest, and salted peat. With water, it opens up, becomes friendlier, rounder in the beginning, but tannic towards the end. It's more on candied lemon, stem ginger (with an increasing intensity), and licorice root.
Moderately long, rather woody than peaty (although the peat is still detectable). It's a combination of salt, ash, licorice, ginger and pepper.
