Peaty, sweet, figs, prunes, apricots, lemon, orange, mint, chocolate, liquerish, heather honey. Some wood herbal notes like citrus thyme and rosemary. A pleasant mix of earthy and fruity notes.
Good finish with dark chocolate and raisins. Very sweet, fruity, coffee and tobacco notes.
8 out of 10. Lovely dram. Thomas had saved a little sample a couple of years ago of his bottle for a later taste. Very glad he did so I could enjoy this expression. Back then I was no good at all with peaty whisky sadly, and this one is peated to more than 100 parts per million. Lovely expression.
