"The peat notes are on the ashy and vegetal side which continue on the palate. Malty sweetness and an oily texture follow you on the palate which blend nicely with the peat notes. Water (just a splash will do) is encouraged here just to amp up these nice notes, but the whisky is easy to drink as is."
