Nose
Big smoke! Bog myrtle,seaweed,some linseed,smoked eel. Salty. In time some dubbin (oiliness). With water shows youth and a burning paper note.
Palate
Seems young.Has crunchy malt counterbalanced by some oiliness in the middle. Briny with hot peppers and a little pecan sweetness. The smoke is dominant on the back palate.
Finish
Young. Spent ashes and tarred rope. Hint of balsam.
Comment
Has considerable character. Fresh, young but for peat freaks only.

Nose
Medicinal and mineral. Créosote. Disinfectant. Wet pebble. Bog myrtle, citrus fruit,smoke. A touch of camphor. Then barley sugar,vanilla biscuit. Pungent but the aromatic display is under control.
Palate
Sweet maltiness followed by an explosion of peat,smoke from the kiln and soot. Salty feel.
Finish
Lingering with mineral notes.
Comment
As we say in French,an iron hand in a velvet glove. Splendid.
