Nose: a mild smokiness (more wood smoke than peat), also notes of malt, mint and butter. Quite nice. The palate is light and fresh at first, then delivers quite a punch of peat and spices (a drop of water takes the edge off that, if you want). The finish is smoky, malty and minty. All in all light-bodied yet quite peaty; complex with an unusual and interesting smokiness. Very nice!

Score: 88 p
