"The peated casks come through here as soon as you take a sniff. More of a savory, rather than a sweet nose with further notes of walnuts, orange peel, and toasted malt. The body is moderately full creamy with the dram finishing with a nice bite due to the proof level and a bittersweet taste. Pair with a charcuterie plate. "
