"This wonderful addition to Chichibu's The Peated range delivers greater power and peat than the releases before it. A salty sea breeze carrying earth, pine needles, grass, and smoked peat invades the nose. Depth and darkness define the palate, with charcoal, dark chocolate and licorice first, followed by cinnamon and pepper. The rich, oily mouthfeel and mineral-forward, sweet earthy finish make this one of the most complex Chichibu releases to date."
