The aroma of something powerful and fiery awaiting you. Thick, heavy woodsmoke. Rich, earthy peat. Extremes of spice and sweetness. Fresh lemon, zesty ginger, rich plum jam. The flavour gives an explosion of breathtaking peppery, peaty heat, soothed by honeyed sweetness, before the smoke comes to the fore again. The finale of this whisky brings exotic spices and a curious citrus tang of mandarin, both lulling you into a false sense of calm as the peat roars back to hit your senses again.
