General description

Nose : while I initially got the smoke /peat right away, it gets more complex and I then get the lavander, iodine and honey.
Palate : round sweet and floral at first, peat kicks in pretty quickly and brings up seaweed notes.
Finish : long peaty and salty finish. Really long finish, getting malt notes there as well, calls for another sip to check what I previously tasted...

Adding water made it more floral and much more smokey to me.
