General description

Wonderful nose with almonds, asian pears, honey, peaches, and herbal tea standing out. Extraordinarly delicate and smooth. Asian pears carry over to the palate along with honey and some slight hints of smoke on the backend. The smoke follows through on the end. Its very delicate and doesn't really require water to open up. Its not explosive but elegant and refined - excellent dram.
