"The nose is dense and unified without losing its gentle character. Calm peat smoke is layered with honey, candy lemon, wild flowers, butterscotch and an underlying freshness. This distinguished nose blends into a creamy palate loaded with fruity jam where the smokiness acts like a bodyguard to the whisky’s delicate flavors. A warming spice carries through the glistening smoky finish. "
