"There's a savory quality here somewhat like mushroom and perhaps oily fish which is mixed with some berry fruit. It's not oft-putting, however. The wood spices are gentle and there's a malty flavor on the palate coupled with a moderate amount of peat smoke though nothing else really stands out here on the short to average finish."
