If this were a cologne, I would buy it. Deep rich scent. Dark, carmely, and just the right amount of peat. Almost a hint of bacon to it. First sip: I like it. Mid bodied entry, bordering on thin, even a touch thinner in the middle, but the back of the pallet and the finish exactly mirror the smell. Second sip: consistent with the first. I could do a dram of this on a regular basis. It’s not a daily drinker, too brash and burly for that. It’s pretty warm too. But that “rough around the edges” feel also makes it special. I want a bottle.
