Nosing: Peat and smoke, but with a cloyingly sweet undertone.... I love Balvenie, and I love Islay, this smells exactly like I imagined it would. The peat is intense, but not maritime like laphroaig, more rounded and "friendly", but still smokey. Vanilla, dark cherry, and pomegranate buried deeply under the smoke. Peat SmokeVanillaCherry

Taste: Spicy, aggressive, but in a good way. This is the "freshest" plated dram I have ever experienced..... crisp, clean smoke, chili peppers, cooling into vanilla, honey sweetness and grapefruit later. This is an amazing dram. Peat SmokeVanillaGrapefruitHoney

Finish: Long finish, and very pleasant. The initial punch mellows into pleasant smoke lingering lightly, and the sweet/citrus notes tend to become more pronounced. VanillaGrapefruitPeat Smoke

Comment: Dear David Stewart, why don't you try a "peat month"? This takes one of my favorite highland drams, and kicks it up to a point beyond belief. Balvenie with huevos. Fantastic dram, and a true gem of a scotch. With my affinity for peat, this is an easy 5 for me.
