    • Nose

      Smoked seafood, medicinal, something pleasant I can’t place at first – I think it’s seashells. Water draws out that mystery/seashell smell to the front.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Green apple, salt, like apple saltwater taffy, smoke. Water gives a briny flavor.
    • Finish

      Pepper, earth, rubber. With water, ashy smoke, and it is shortened.

    • Nose
      Peat, watercolor paints, tires, in the background a little lemon
    • Taste
      Again peat, burnt plastic, rubber
    • Finish
      Really long, but it wasn't pleasant

    • Nose
      Both closer to the grain and closer to the garden fruits than all others. Hint asphalt.
    • Taste
      Well, no medicinal notes here and very little salt, instead of more overripe apples, licorice, leather and tobacco.
    • Finish
      Long dry finish

    I would rather say it could be young heavily peated Bunnahabhain. Anyways it definitely hot and peaty, little to rough and youngish, but peat lovers should like it.
