"A tantalizing and complex nose swirls with vanilla pudding, tropical fruits, green apple, and a unique orange Creamsicle note, all backed with peat. The palate is smooth and oily-creamy, showcasing stewed fruits and rich vanillins which give way to robust campfire smoke, asphalt, peat, black pepper, and spice. A long, even-keeled finish sticks around for ages. Luscious dram. "
