    Nose: slight smoke, heavy plum/red wine. Slight lemon zest. Taste: Very smooth. Not hot. Plum, lots of oak spice. Depending on your palette, some smoke is present (I didn’t get much first go around, but did when tasting this again, after a bourbon). Finish: very, very long. Starts with oak spice on sides of tongue, finishes with a dry red wine that lingers forever. Hint of smoke.

    Nose: sea salt, ocean air, peat, light smoke, red wine, dark cherries, slightest hint of orange peel Taste: immediately salt on the tongue, hint of smoke, peat and sherry intermingle with each other but the peat is still leading the way, spices (clove maybe), oak Finish: light smoke, tobacco, like a dry red wine, toasted orange peel, medium-ish length but then it lingers ever so slightly for a good while Everything I dig about Lagavulin, but with a nice twist.

    Nose is oak, green apple, spice, and caramel. Taste is the same, really. Starts with a sweet, crisp green apple, fades into a nice spicy, dry oaky finish, a pinch of tobacco and sea salt in the finish too. No big hints of peat or smoke. It's complex.
