I wonder if this whisky would fare better if it was drunk in a more 'busy' environment like hangout places, instead of being sipped quietly and slowly alone...
The nose began with green mango, which is nice! Medicinal peat at the center stage but not overwhelming, so well done. Then came ground clove, and vanilla. Overtime the peat started to lean towards the ashy aspect, accompanied by lime zest. Not bad overall.
Smelled it again after first sip, there was pound cake behind the ash, and more vanilla. Add one point.
Ashy sweetness, some toffee, even butterscotch. Still, a bit plain. But the good body and mouth-coating texture to some extent came to the rescue .
Lingering ashy after taste, quite mild at 50% ABV. Unfortunately a bit too one dimensional.
