"The aroma is robust and hearty with its roasted cereal character. On the palate, there's a slight medicinal quality to the whisky along with barrel spices and sweet malt. The palate is where some peat smoke makes its appearance, but the intensity is low to moderate. Coffee grounds and toffee are detected on the pleasant, albeit, short finish."
