The color is a golden honey yellow and the nose is vibrant, fresh and promising. There is prominent initial peat smoke and the earthy aromas fade to reveal some vanilla, honey, dried grass and sweet butterscotch and zesty lemon. The dried grass herbal notes carry on through to the palate. There is plenty going on and the smokiness is again prominent and earthy. Other notes include oatcakes, honey, vanilla, coconut and cocoa powder. It feels creamy with a slight mineral and switches from sweet to savory very well. Some tangy lemon zest again adds even further depth. The finish is long and drying with the peat smoke fading after significant time.
