Nosing: Peat SmokeLemon PeelCaramelMaritime Notes
The nose is slightly smoky, its clear this is a light peat treatment. Sweetness, caramel and citrus peel. Some maritime saltiness.

Taste: SweetPeat SmokeSpicesPepperSalt
Full body, sweet arrival, smokiness comes through, but isn't overpowering. Oak spiciness comes through, along with a big hit of black pepper. Salty towards the end.

Finish: SpicesPeat SmokeSaltSweet
Lingering spiciness and smoke, nice mix of sweet and salt

Comment:
I came across this as I'm doing a run on 12 year old malts I haven't had yet. This one is an absolute gem. I will say though that it needs a little time after opening the bottle for it to settle down. Initially I was getting a lot of leather and menthol on the nose and the palate was a bit disjointed, but after a few days this went away. It also benefits a great deal from a bit of water, not a lot, maybe a teaspoon or so. I like level of the peat in this whisky, enough to be noticeable but not enough to strip 5 layers off your tongue. The saltiness also is a pleasant surprise, I like the maritime notes, and they're quite pronounced in this release.
The quality for the price on this one is absolutely outstanding, definitely one I'd recommend trying.
