The taste is very vibrant. I imagine standing in the front of the boat with the wind in my hair and beard. The alcohol and peat together makes it fierce, but not in the bad way. Some dark berries comes to mind, and the finish is a bit spicy with hints of black pepper.
It stays a while in the mouth and leaves you with an impression of a full bodied and competent whisky. This is a permanent whisky in my collection. Great value for a whisky often on sale. I will rate this 86/100 (21/22/21/22).
