Tasting Notes

"The peaty storm was expected, but the smoky aromas aren't overpowering the citrusy, fruity and spicy notes on the nose. There's also something deliciously salty in the background. The palate is rich with a full array of aromas delivering drift wood, grapefruit, lemon zest, vegetal notes, and yummy vanilla. The smoke fades gently and the whisky ends with a citrusy finish."
