Visual: Pleasantly rich warm gold colour with great viscosity
On Nose: smoky sweet without the often found rancid bacon quality some highly peated malts present. Instead this nose is gentle with just enough peat to please yet allows the coming taste array to hint through.
On the Palate: Excellent marriage of honey and smoke; deep rush of anise at first swallow and a back taste of light coriander. Ends with a hint of raspberry essence in the lingering licorice. Full and well balanced; soft enough to truly enjoy without any added water even at 46%.
