Nose
A strong waft of dried ginger, nutmeg, white pepper, butterscotch sauce and a spiky but closed peat wait to spring out of the cupboard at you.
Palate
Hot and very peppery, with a zingy dry chipotle note, leading into some very direct iodine/peat smoke dry brown toast and a little potted shrimp.
Finish
There's no escaping the peat or the pepper, but each are well balanced, giving way to a malty undertone.
Comment
Sometimes the palate cries out for whiskies as direct as this, especially on cold days like today.

Nose
Masses of spice come through the alcohol, pepper grinds, turmeric, Angel Delight powder, caramelised sugar, eventually a distant coal tar soap.
Palate
Lots of big spiced notes, chillies, Gentlemen's Relish, then that peat note comes in, smoked haddock.
Finish
Waves of peat laced with that chilli hotness all pinned together with a big slab of malt loaf.
Comment
A perfect dram to see you through the chilly nights.
