Nose: Overwhelming tropical fruits - tinned peaches, tinned pineapple, fresh mango and kiwi, banana, lychee, strawberry. Some grassiness behind, develops (natural) caramel and Highland toffee aromas. Almost no discernible smoke.
Palate: Rich syrupy texture, now we find the phenols - wet peat, then honey, flax / wet linen and some of the fruity elements come in, but now with more orangey notes. Pretty peppery & spicy too at full strength. Water tames the phenols and releases more of the lovely fruity notes.
Finish: Long and hot at full strength - mellow and fruity with a
touch of water.
