Wine EnthusiastThe nosing passes find smoky, pipe tobacco-like peat reek but the peatiness found here differs from Islay peatiness with sweeter, earthier, more smoky/ashy scents. The palate entry taste is sweet and tobacco leaf -like; the midpalate continues smoky with added subtle notes of honey and caramel. Finishes prickly, warm and alluringly sweet.
