Having said that, I find this a fairly good whisky. It's very drinkeable if you like smoky whiskies. It's certainly not onedimensional, yet neither is it the most complex whisky. It's well balanced. The only remark I have is that it's a bit hot on the finish.
The nose is dominated by a metallic set of flavours and by rather earthy peat smoke (roots). The metallic nose could be OBE, but I'm not certain. Apart from that, there is some nice honeyed malt in there, and plenty of green notes (freshly cut grass, spearmint), and a hint of shoe polish and polished furniture (wood). Far away is a hint of dried fruit.
It's sufficiently powerful. The attack is creamier and less smoky than the nose suggests. There is more "green" and dried fruit to be detected. Grass, menthol, chlorophyl, and date, raisin and prune. Towards the end, there is spice (nutmeg and chili pepper) and a return of the smoke (with licorice root and licorice allsorts).
The finish is quite long and lingering (salivating). It gets a bit hot on chili spice, but apart from that it's pleasant. Moss, licorice root, smoke, menthol and a hint of prune is what lingers.
