"There's a little musty nose at first, but once that blows off you find lots of fruity notes such as apple and peach. The palate continues with more fruit in the form of a lemon custard tart. Wet stones crop up in the background along with a trace of peat and dried herbs. The proof adds a nice bite to the finish. Adding a few drops of water is recommended to soften and sweeten the whisky."
