"As you smell the whisky, you get a pleasant mix of fruit (think orange and pears), and peat smoke which is on the mild/moderate side. A touch of vanilla and barrel spices join in on subsequent nosings. This is more or less the same as you taste with the whisky finishing with a pleasant spicy bite and an exhale of fruit and smoke. A hint of chocolate lingers as well. A great whisky for those just getting into the peated whisky category."
