"Sweet, fruity and smoky--that pretty much sums it up. It's almost candy-esque at times. The smoke is coastal, with hints of seaweed. Fruits? Think red berries. And lots of vanilla too. The palate is noticeably peatier and quite spicy. There's some red wine sweetness in the background, but not much. Overall, this is one for the peat lover with a sweet tooth."
