As soon as you pour it in the glass the peat smoke hits you in the face. Within a minute the intensity fades off and the malt shines through. For a higher ABV peated, it really is tame. The funky bandaid is not prevalent here. Sweet young malt, typical bourbon, and sherry notes come to the forefront after 10 minutes in the glass. The mouth feel is intense and coating. Moderate phynolics soak in with deep malty sweetness then fades to dry oaky smoke. There is a very slight briney seashore note. Aftertaste is earthy, smoky with a dry bourbon oak.
