Nose: Lightly spiced (Brylcreem?) rich and malty.
Palate: Sweet, chewy, finely oaked and vanilla'd.
Finish: Buttery, smoky and oaky (more than O.K.).

Tasting Notes by Tim F
Nose: Waxy & oily at first nosing. Then honey notes, some floral esters, slight turfiness, spot of ginger and spices turning up eventually. With time, more floral notes appear.
Palate: Oily peat initially, then the malt struggles through. A bit disappointing.
Finish: Some disquieting soapy notes amongst the peatiness.
Comment: A quite promising nose let down on the palate. Interesting, but not to my taste.
