Aroma: alcohol, light sea salt caramel. Flavor: rock salt, chocolate cake, smokey sweet.
Strong initial impact with a lot of oak & ash. Fades pretty quickly. Cheesecake. Red apple. Rubber.
Starts light then a punch of peat + heat through the nose.
Rich, earthy peat nose. Slapped my tongue with spice. A bit harsh up front but finishes ok.
